The seventh and penultimate disc in London Baroque s highly acclaimed survey of the Trio Sonata genre through the seventeenth- and eighteenth-centuries, lets us sample the developments in Italy which led to the genres decline and eventual demise.
This disc features Domenico Gallo s trio sonata
that inspired Stravinsky to compose Pulcinella (it was mistakenly believed for some time that Pergolesi composed this work).
'The energetic playing and the eloquent dialogue between Ingrid Seifert and Richard Gwilt is a joy to hear. Charles Medlam and Steven Devine deliver engaging support. Those who are acquainted with the previous volumes in this series will not hesitate to add this disc to their collection.' --MusicWeb International
