Reference: PC 10212
Description: Mossi was a violinist in the same Roman orchestra (of Prince Ruspoli) as Corelli and Giuseppe Valentini and, while the former provides most of the influence in this first of Mossi's published works (1716), the latter was later to push him towards what would later be called the Empfindsamkeit style in his later sonatas and concertos (which we hope will be sampled for future recordings). Leila Schayegh (violin), Ilze Grudule (cello), Jörg Halubek (harpsichord).
