Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770)
Flute Concertos, Sonatas, The Devil's trill
Born in Pirano d’Istria and then established in Padua, Giuseppe Tartini began studying music and violin at a religious college where he also distinguished himself as skilled fencing shooter; at the same time he also studied law showing his great abilities with which he was able to overcome any kind of commitment. He soon became an international point of reference when he founded the “Scuola delle Nazioni” (School of Nations) in Padova, where many students came from all over Europe to perfect the art of the violin under his guidance. In this double CD including the concerts for flute, for strings, and various sonatas including the famous “Trillo del Diavolo”, the two soloists Massimo Mercelli (flute) and Marco Rogliano (violin) are accompanied by the Ensemble Respighi from Bologna.
