GIOVANNI BATTISTA VITALI (1632-1692): 12 Sonate a 2,3, 4 e 5 stromenti, Op. 5.
Catalogue Number: 05V015
Reference: TC 632205
Description: The title of each of these sonatas is the surname of a well-known aristocratic family of the area of Modena: this was Vitali’s explicit homage to the circles in which he was working. Each sonata is different in its affect and style: the musical material is complex and diversified, almost as if it were actually personalized: this seems to suggest that there is a deliberate correspondence between the individual pieces and the people to whom they were dedicated. Italico Splendore.
