Born in Turin, Felice Giardini since he was young, he manifested a predilection for the violin, but his father sent him to study singing, harpsichord and composition at the Chapel of the Cathedral of Milan. Back in Turin, he went on to study violin with the renowned Giovanni Battista Somis and began to hold positions as a violinist first in Turin and then to Naples, where he later became vice-master of the Teatro San Carlo chapel. Giardini decided to pursue a solo career, he traveled to Europe and after the great successes during the concerts held in Berlin and France, he settled in England, where he remained for more than forty years, supported by the relevant protection families of London. He was Italian opera director throughout his stay in London. And it is just in London that Felice Giardini gives birth to the 6 Concerts of the 15th Opera for Violin and Orchestra presented in this prestigious case. Such an important corpus could only have an outstanding interpreter of the music of the Classical period: Carmignola who joined the ensemble ''Accademia Annunciata'' conducted by Riccardo Doni, has given birth to a sparkling performance and rich in emotional moments thanks to disarming simplicity of his melodies, as he told Charles Burney ''Giardini introduced a new way of playing.'' The project is complemented by a symphony Jhoann Christian Bach and Karl Friedrich Abel with whom Giardini always had excellent relations of friendship and work. An unmissable album to reaffirm that our musical heritage is still full of many treasures waiting to be rediscovered and performed.
