Merula and Uccellini

Lucie Skeaping introduces music by two less well-known composers of the 17th century: Tarquinio Merula and Marco Uccellini. Both Italian and violinists, they were also at the forefront of compositional developments, and new violin techniques. Music in the programme includes some of their canzonas and sonatas performed by the ensemble La Ciaconna from a concert they gave in 2011 in Geneva, and also repertoire from recordings by Ensemble Fitzwilliam, Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and Romanesca.
