Label: MVC Cremona
Reference: MVC 005-011
Description: An Italian Jew active in London from 1738 onwards (and still playing the cello in public at the age of 98), Cervetto had these sonatas published in the period of 1741-45. Three movements, singable melody and solo+accompaniment terms for the two cellists are part of the galant style but there are also some older stylistic parts with the two cellos in imitation as in the Italian baroque. Martin Zeller, Marco Frezzato (cellos), Nicola Dal Maso (violone), Roberto Bevilacqua (double bass), Stefano Demicheli (harpsichord, organ).
