Antonio Bertali: Sonata à 3 in D minor

March 11, 2019

Lesser known music from the early-mid 17th century is becoming more popular for historical ensembles to perform, although still almost entirely unknown to modern players and audiences. Quicksilver specializes in this music, performing it as I (full disclosure- former student of violinist Julie Andrijeski writing here…) think it is most compelling. Rhythmic, full of incredibly unexpected harmonies, and flashy solos are just a few of the attributes this music posseses. All tracks on this album are Fantasticus, so picking only one was difficult!
