A great virtuoso player, praised to the skies by some and disparaged by others, Pietro Antonio Locatelli was something of an oddity in 17th and 18th century Italy and the grand musical cities of Europe. The works of the grand masters of the violin held no secrets for him.  He played, amongst others, Geminiani, Tartini, Torelli, Corelli, Veracini, Vitali and vivaldi. His talenT as a composer, allied with brilliant analytical insights, enabled him to create a synthesis of the music of Rome and Venice. Together with his sonatas and concerti grossi, the 12 concertos and 24 caprices of ‘L’Arte del violino’ – a homage to Venice, dedicated to the Ventian patrician, Girolamo Michiel Lini, was published in 1733 in Amsterdam where locatelli had settled in 1729 and was to stay until his death in 1765.

Audiophile Audition

Ms. Cantoreggi, who hails from Luxembourg, plays a rare 18th century violin provided by the Banque Internationale à Luxembourg – BIL. She has selected for her program three illustrative concertos from a set of 12 concertos and 24 caprices by the 17th/18th-century violin virtuoso and composer Locatelli.He performed all the noted Italian composers of the time but broke some new grounds with his collection The Art of the Violin. No one before him had advanced the virtuosity quite as far nor explored the highest reaches of the instrument’s pitch range. His imagination and innovation was unique and Cantoreggi obviously feels in perfect tune with his music.

This is not just more of the same Vivaldi or Corelli; Locatelli in this violinist’s hands is something very special. I found this the most enjoyable Baroque program I have heard in ages, and the detailed sonics and surround acoustics don’t hurt the impression a bit. Highly recommended.
