Teodorico Pedrini had quite the journey during his lifetime. Over the course of eight years he traveled from Italy to the Canary Island, Chile, Mexico, Peru, and the Philippines. Pedrini is the sole 18th century composer of which we know that wrote European compositions in China, where he finally arrived in 1711. Upon arrival in Beijin, he worked for emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong until he died in 1746. Pedrini is still considered one of the most significant ambassadors for Western music in Asia. His complete violin sonatas, presented here, are performed by violinist Nancy Wilson, and harpsichordist Joyce Lindorff.
