Two particularly spectacular personalities of the Baroque period, which was not short of exciting figures: Antonio Veracini, violin virtuoso, teacher and composer in Florence. Although he was a highly respected musician and teacher in his own time, only few of his works have survived. His nephew Francesco Maria, to whom he taught violin and composition, was a completely different type. Hotheaded, eccentric, ingenious – as he was described by his contemporaries. This character is reflected today in his works, which attest to an extraordinary freedom from conventions. On this CD the soloist Rüdiger Lotter finds a celebrity partner in the recorder player Dorothee Oberlinger. The Continuo part very well cast also promises an adventurous listening experience through the contrasting soundscapes of the Veracinis.
