Label: Acte Préalable
Description: Another musician highly thought of in his time is rescued from oblivion: Neapolitan by birth, Maschitti lived most of his extraordinarily long life in Paris where, as an admirer of Corelli, he combined French and Italian styles in his music. These works will appeal especially to those who appreciate the latter\'s concertos and sonatas. Some of his concerti grossi and a couple of sonatas were offered in these pages in April 1999. Ensemble Baroques-Graffiti.
