Vivaldi Two Sonatas for Violoncello and Basso continuo
Vivaldi was familiar with the technique and idiomatic qualities of the cello and writing for the cello seems to have drawn from Vivaldi a special empathy: there is a degree of seriousness and expressive depth which is encountered much less consistently in his violin music. Perhaps it has something to do with the cello’s low register, since similar qualities inform his writing for bassoon.
This Urtext edition, edited by Bettina Hoffmann, provides you with a clear and accurate realisation of the composer’s original intentions with thoroughly detailed editorial markings and suggestions. The solo cello part is also included on a separate insert.
