Grandissima Gravita

Rachel Podger; Brecon Baroque

Johann Georg PISENDEL (1687- 1755):
Sonata for Violin and harpsichord in C

Giuseppe TARTINI (1692-1770)
Sonata for Violin and continuo in A minor op 2 no 5

Francesco Maria VERACINI (1690-1768)
Sonata for violin and continuo in G minor op 2 no 5
Sonata for violin and continuo in D minor op 2 no 12

Antonio VIVALDI (1678-1741)
Sonata for Violin and continuo in A major op 2 no 2

• This CD brings together the compositions by four violinist-composers.

• United by a reverence for Arcangelo Corelli (1653- 1713), and in particular his Opus 5, these works explore the imagination of form that was the Sonata for violin and continuo.

• Weaving together stylised dances and the preludic tradition, we are transported to a world of musical alchemy - the violinist creating ex nihilo
textures and melodies that entrance and amaze.

• Rachel Podger: “The four composers’ connections read like a popular comedy! Violin virtuosos Francesco Maria Verachini andJohann Georg
Pisendel had an argument which resulted in Veracini flying into a rage and throwing himself from first floor a balcony, damaging his foot and
limping forever after. Verachini amazed Giuseppe Tartini with his astonishingly smooth bowing technique, whereupon Tartini locked himself away
topractice. Pisendel studied with Tartini and Antonio Vivaldi...”
