High Quality Numbered, Limited Edition 180g Vinyl! Autographed by Enrico Bronzi! Cut From Original Masters At Elettroformati in Milan Using An Original Neumann Record Lathe!
Concerto is inaugurating a series of vinyl recordings, beginning with this
recording of Francesco Geminiani's first 4 Sonatas for Cello and basso continuo
Op. 5. The vinyl recording has been produced according to the very highest
standards of quality, both in terms of the lacquer density and in terms of data
transfer from the original master, thanks to the work of Elettroformati in
Milan, one of the few companies in Europe still working on vinyl records. An
original Neumann record lathe was used to this purpose under the watchful eyes
of the label's manager and sound technicians.
The continuo part is performed by Michele Barchi, following the performance
practice existing at the time, handling the figured bass line masterfully by
reinventing and recreating the images and emotions of that period with exquisite
polish. Barchi has been a member of well-known musical formations such as the
Giardino Armonico. Together with the violinist Elisa Citterio he founded the
Baroque music group Brixia Musicalis and as harpsichordist appears in concert,
performing both as soloist and in chamber music groups.
