BALDASSARE GALUPPI (1706-1785): 7 Concertos for Strings.
Catalogue Number: 06Q029
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Possibly not even intended for performance, these pieces, for string quartet and continuo, may have been Galuppi's experiment in mixing the old counterpoint with the new desire for easy melody. The cello has some independent moments but is mostly still a continuo instrument (supplemented here by organ). Ensemble StilModerno.
