Catalogue Number: 03L029
Reference: CHR 77310
Description: Our mini Platti renaissance moves along from keyboard sonatas to string duos with this release of works probably all dating from the later 1720s. In sonata da chiesa four-movement form (except for one of the ricertate), the sonatas are typical melody instrument/continuo pieces with the bass-line occasionally embellishing the melody while the ricercate play off the wide range of sound possible with the violin and cello.
