By Federico Del Sordo and Valerio Losito. By Georg Philipp Telemann. Country of Origin: Germany. Classical. Listening CD. Published by Naxos (NX.BRI95391).

The six "sonatas for violin solo, accompanied by the cembalo" were written by Telemann in Frankfurt in 1715. He had a high regard for them, dedicated them to the Prince Johann Ernst von Sachsen, and published them as his "Opera prima," his first published work. The sonatas perfectly blend the French and Italian styles, their four movements modeled on the sonatas by Corelli and inspired by Vivaldi's Op. 2. Fresh, melodious and brilliantly written they are full of unexpected turns and influences, notably of Polish folk music in certain movements. These are excellent performances in the historically informed performance practice by Valerio Losito and Federico Del Sordo, who already successfully recorded sonatas by Veracini, Tessarini, and Domenico Scarlatti.
