Description: This survey of works by the first Italian cellist-composers covers roughly 75 years, ending in 1757. You'll know some of them but not others and you'll be surprised by the Bach-like Capricci by the son of the more famous Evaristo Dall'Abaco. Elinor Frey (cello), Esteban La Rotta (theorbo, guitar), Susie Napper (continuo cello).
