Trained under the guidance of A. Scorpione, D.A. Giordani and F.A. Urio, Francesco M. Benedetti is Chapel Master in Assisi, friend of G. Tartini and confrere of Father Martini. The complex counterpoint of his music closely recalls Bachian characteristics which, however, give way to galant elements that in some points result in a pre-classical language. Dense and virtuosic ornamentations typical of the performance pratice of the time support the theories on the ornamentation practice of the time.

The three sonatas by Bach of this album are likely to rank among the most famous and most performed compositions for viola da gamba, and they represent one of the tops of the literature for this instrument. Nevertheless for this recording was used the viola da braccio, according to the practice of the Baroque era which precedes and accompanies the decline of the viola da gamba. These pieces are composed as a trio sonata, a favourite genre by the Maestro. They are mainly based on polyphonic writing, in which no instrument prevails over the other. In some pieces the organ was used in place of the harpsichord, a choice of the performers to explore new varieties of timbre and off er diff erent instrumental colours.

György Cziffra was one of the most celebrated and individual piano virtuosos of the postwar decades in Europe, especially noted for his powers of improvisation and as a Liszt pianist. He was born in a shantytown called Angels Court on the outskirts of Budapest to a family of gypsy musicians. The family was desperately poor, and ultimately both his father and a sister died of starvation. He learned piano by watching an older sister's lessons. By the age of five, he was improvising requests from the audience at a circus. At ten, he was sent to the conservatory in Budapest.

Ignacy Jan Paderewski Paderewski's career had a Faustian cast. His demonically driven determination to become a concert pianist, his magical audience rapport, his rapture-rife music, his political career as Poland's first prime minister, and his subsequent efforts to rescue Poland from political quagmire wear a legendary aura more often encountered in poetry. Born to a well-off, cultivated family, young Paderewski received piano lessons from an early age, entering the Warsaw Music Institute before he was 12 to study piano, harmony, and counterpoint. Upon graduation in 1878 the Institute engaged him as a piano teacher.

This selection of chamber compositions for the cello aims to reveal the gradual birth of the romantic idea of music in the middle of the historical period called Classicism though the works of Ignaz Joseph Pleyel, Francois Cupis de Renoussard, Domenico Lanzetti and Jean Bathasar Tricklir.Although still partially formulated on the late eighteenth century model, these works go beyond the usual aesthetic formulas of their time, showing the restlessness and curiosity for the new horizons that revolutionary thought had opened to the eyes of the European minds, in the footsteps of "sentiment" and above all of a new mythology which, as Friedrich von Schlegel wrote: "must be formed by the extreme depth of the spirit ".

The compositions contained on this CD allow us to become familiar with the most significant and compelling chamber music scores composed on texts by Dante between the 19th and the 20th centuries, performed by the bass Mairco Palazzi and pianist Marco Scolastra.The primary literary source is the Divine Comedy, especially the Inferno with its characters whose worldly events were horribly and romantically over-whelming. The other work whose verses have been put to music is Vita nova, a middle way between poetry and prose, that is the emotional obsession of an adolescent for the stylised figure of a woman his own age.

'The Golden Age of the Cello in Britain' features works by Emanuel Siprutini, Stephen Paxton, Walter Clagget, James Hook, Hugh Reinagle, Rovert Lindley and others."In the 18th century, London was a centre of extraordinary vivacity for European music, an ideal place for virtuosos of any nation in search of fame. That's what we knew very well when we decided to dedicate one of our recordings to the fortune of cello in Great Britain. Yet we had never suspected that we were going to face such an enormous quantity of compositions for our instrument of such a high and constant quality. Hundreds of chamber sonatas and duets for two cellos, from the easiest ones to the most demanding and virtuosic, not a single page left us indifferent: each one brought with it something that captured our interest and ignited our imagination, each one managed to arouse an enchantment, to transport us lightly or in gravity from vertigo to vertigo, and leave us inebriated with ancient scents and distant memories, as if drunk by a generous, intense red wine, tapped from fine barrels where it had matured to perfection."
