Catalogue Number: 07R017
Reference: GCD 922514
Description: Oddly, there are no complete recordings of Caldara’s Op. 1, a set of da chiesa sonatas from 1693 which are interesting both for the composer’s advances on Corelli’s techniques and style but also for the sometime independent cello part, in effect making these sonatas quadri on occasion, so we offer this new release even though we just recently had a Tactus disc of the complete Op. 2. Amandine Beyer, Leila Schayegh (violins), Jonathan Pesek (cello), Jörg-Andreas Bötticher (harpsichord, organ), Matthias Spaeter (lute).
