Description: A 1995 Olympia disc was reissued on a label called SanCtus in 2008 (12K029) containing all six Opus 3 sonatas performed on modern instruments. Highly virtuosic, demanding the ultimate in contemporary playing technique while also being suffused with Italianate warmth and charm, half of the Op. 3 pieces are coupled with other unrecorded works and they all benefit here from the sound of period instruments. Gaetano Nasillo (cello), Luca Guglielmi (harpsichord), Sara Bennici (continuo cello).
