Sonata Prima (Castello) for Treble instrument (LIVE/unedited)

in #classical-music5 years ago



This is the Sonata Prima from 'Sonate Concertate in Stil Moderno, Libro II, Venice, 1629' by Dario Castello. The sonata is written for unspecified treble instrument and continuo. In my case, that means a violin as I can't play any other sort of treble instrument, and no one likes a recorder!

Anyway, this piece is often one of the first pieces that a newly minted Baroque player plays, as an example of early Italian Baroque music. It was no exception for me either, this was a recording from the early days of Baroque instruction.

I hope you enjoy the music, early Italian Baroque is an interesting style to learn about, much more bizzarre and unexpected that you would consider "Classical" music to be!

I just adore this kind of music. Beautiful!

Nice recording man :) I think I played this once already as a continuo player... Unfortunately with a recorder player. And I survived!

Well what doesn't kill you...

Thanks for listening, we have all had to play for recorders... A necessary evil in our specialisation!
