Very engaging and rewarding sonatas March 17 2011
By Sid Nuncius - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I think this is an excellent set. It is certainly not just the sort of pleasant but forgettable stuff by an obscure Baroque composer which is sometimes recorded; this is very enjoyable, certainly, but has real musical depth and I found the whole thing very engaging and rewarding.

Veracini was roughly contemporary with Bach, and his music looks back to the tradition of Biber rather than forward to the work of people like Veracini's pupil Locatelli. He was plainly a violinist of immense skill (and apparently limitless self-regard) and a good enough composer to write more than just flashy but rather empty stuff to show off his skill, and this set of twelve sonatas has a great variety of very interesting music to commend it.

The performances are really excellent - as always from The Locatelli Trio - and this is another in an impressive catalogue of recordings they have made for Hyperion. Sensitive, supple and full of skill and verve, the three virtuoso musicians plainly love what they are playing and thoroughly enjoy playing it together, and the whole thing is a pleasure from start to finish.

The recorded sound is excellent and the presentation attractive. At this price for three CDs of thoroughly enjoyable and well-played music it's a set to be snapped up, and I recommend it very warmly.

An absolute winner, especially for lovers of Baroque June 21 2011
By Laraine A. Barker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If I was hearing this music on the radio (without having heard the announcer telling us what it was) I certainly wouldn't be able to guess the composer's name, though the music is obviously from the Baroque period. It is truly wonderful listening and deserves to be a lot better known. Here, Elizabeth Wallfisch and her colleagues give performances that aren't likely to be bettered. Hyperion have come up trumps (as they usually do) with a full rich sound. Highly recommended. And by the way, Hyperion [...]) are celebrating their thirtieth birthday this year.
This set of sonatas are a wonderful collection, if you are into Italian baroque Nov. 7 2014
By Adrian T. Chan - Published on

This set of sonatas are a wonderful collection, if you are into Italian baroque. They are more introspective and poetic than the more flashy op.1 set. Previous reviewers already praised much. I would add that Veracini was actually very famous back then, though much neglected after his death till recently. He was a bit of a legend as a great violin virtuoso, and apparently Biber was his rival. His music does look back to the likes of early baroque masters such as Corelli. There were in fact many other countless violin virtuoso composers around his time and Veracini is one of those, and probably one of the top ones among them. But by no means predictable and routine. These are gems of baroque music at its golden age. Great buy!
