“AN ITALIAN XMAS”: Concerto Classics’ Christmas 2017 release

We are pleased to wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with our Christmas 2017 release: An Italian Xmas. The composers presented here were not only born at opposite ends of seventeenth-eighteenth century Europe, but were familiar with one another’s homelands after their journeying in the flesh, in research, or at any rate in the spirit. The Christmas theme is the Leitmotif which unifies all the milestones of this fantastic music voyage.

COMPOSERS: Antonio Vivaldi, Lorenzo Gaetano Zavateri, Giacomo Antonio Perti, Giovanni Battista Martini, Giuseppe Torelli, Georg Friedrich Händel, ...

Top 3 streaming chart: August 2017

The most streamed album of our catalogue in August 2017 is Complete Works for Guitar (2CD) by Francisco Tárrega, performed by the young and yet already successful Giulio Tampalini. The composer Angelo Gilardino (see below) writes about Francisco Tárrega: “His works for guitar reflect some of the key traits of ‘minor’ Romanticism: the predilection for introspection, the quest for the exotic and an interest in the ‘music of the people’. Moreover, he developed the genre called ‘studio da concerto’ for the guitar, recreating works of other
composers, written for other instruments.”

Works for organ and harpsichord of the italian Seventeenth Century composer Girolamo Frescobaldi

Girolamo Frescobaldi Daniele Proni

Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643) is without doubt the most influential figure in the field of harpsichord in the first half of the seventeenth century.

Harpsichord and organ, thanks to the large compositive legacy that the composer from Ferrara delivered to the press, evolve until they became different tools to use and purpose. The great independence from the schemes and the flair of style are the distinguishing features ...

This recording of Ensemble Chiaroscuro sees a very authentic and original concert programme, a journey through time and space.

From Dario Castello’s stil modern, rich in enthusiasm and exploration, to the eighteenth-century sonatas that are the culmination of that research. A champion, Captaine Hume, who plays the viola evocatively, Italian composers who write in the style of the French and Germans who write in the ...
