Description

Out of Italy on CD

The 18th century experienced a mass migration of musicians from Italy - hitherto regarded as "the home of music" - seeking better fortunes in nations to the north. Giacobbe Basevi Cervetto, Giambatista Cirri and Francesco Geminiani went to London, Luigi Boccherini to Madrid. Antonio Vivaldi aimed for Dresden though never arrived, having died en route in Vienna. These Italian instrumentalists / composers and others are the focus of Out of Italy, a survey of sonatas and duos for two cellos and continuo by eminent baroque cellist Phoebe Carrai and her protégé Beiliang Zhu, many of them quite rare. "full-bodied... distinguished performances that offer a genuine point of view" (Classics Today on Phoebe Carrai's Bach Cello Suites) "elegant and sensual, stylishly wild" (The New Yorker on Beiliang Zhu)
