Description: 18th-century Italian violinists trained in the tradition of Corelli spread his elegant, expressive and virtuosic style on their travels throughout Europe. Mossi’s sonatas retain Corelli’s dramatic contrasts and structure, while Carbonelli also incorporates features found in music by Vivaldi. Both composers’ works combine formal elegance with wild abandon, lyrical charm and virtuosity alongside plenty of room for improvisation. Augusta McKay Lodge (violin), Doug Balliet (violone), Ezra Seltzer (cello), Adam Cockerham (theorbo, guitar), Elliot Figg (harpsichord).
