About the album

omposer Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770) was a man who was always perfectionistic about himself. The old master was in possession of two qualities which never abandoned him: the sharp and questioning attitude of the scientist and the unfathomable emotion of the artist. The head and the heart coming together in beautiful music!Giuseppe Tartini was a legend in his lifetime, and one of the most influential figures in the golden age of the baroque era. Known as “Il maestro delle Nazioni” Tartini was, according to his contemporaries, a kind and affable man, and his respectable behaviour did not bear any trace of the intemperance he showed as a young man. It is of course possible that a mature man learns to keep his emotions under control, but in the case of a great artist one can say that he chose to wear a mask that hid all underlying passions.

Through the performance of violinist Luigi De Filippi on this debut cd, we can catch a glimpse of Tartini’s real expression, the intense and intelligent face of a man who, albeit not exactly orientated towards the future, all the same moved decidedly away from the baroque era. Although Tartini made some msitakes in his life as a young man, this made himto reflect upon himself and on music as well. He for instance delves into the “secret” of music, of its cathartic faculties, of what in music goes straight to the heart and what barely scratches the surface of emotions; he notices that folk music has an eloquence denied to learned music. Of the music of the folk, that he describes as “natural” music, he distills the essence, and employs the fundaments in his sonatas and concertos.
Indrukwekkende selectie sonates van een Italiaanse meester
Dit album is het solodebuut van de Italiaanse violist Luigi De Filippi. Hij speelt hier een aantal solo sonates van componist Giuseppe Tartini.

Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770) was een man die altijd perfectionistisch was over zichzelf. De oude meester had twee kwaliteiten die hem nooit in de steek lieten: de scherpe en kritische houding van de wetenschapper en de ondoorgrondelijke emotie van een artiest. Het verstand en het gevoel komen samen in zijn prachtige muziek. Giuseppe Tartini was een legende in zijn tijd en één van de meest invloedrijke figuren in de gouden eeuw van het baroktijdperk. Tartini, ook wel bekend als “Il maestro delle Nazioni”, was volgens zijn tijdgenoten een aardige en voorkomende man en zijn respectabele gedrag liet geen enkel spoor van de grilligheid na die hij als jongeman had.

Tartini verdiepte zich in het “geheim” van de muziek en ging op zoek naar wat de mensen raakt en naar de dingen die nauwelijks iets doen met mensen. Zijn ontdekkingen gebruikte hij bij het componeren van zijn sonates en concerto’s.

Luigi de Filippi is violist bij het piano trio Voces Intimae en heeft een grote belangstelling voor kamermuziek dat gespeeld wordt op eigentijdse instrumenten. Met zijn ensemble treedt hij veel op en neemt regelmatig albums op. In de herfst van 2011 bracht het trio zijn debuutalbum uit. Voces Intimae heeft ook in de VS getourd.
Bestechende Auswahl aus den ‚Piccole sonate’.

Giuseppe Tartini war zu seiner Zeit eine lebende Legende und einer der einflussreichsten Figuren im Goldenen Zeitalter des Barock. Luigi De Filippi, dem Geiger des italienischen Klaviertrios ‚Voces Intimae’, gelingt es mit dieser Auswahl aus den ‚Piccole sonate’, Tartinis Juwelen auf intelligente Weise zum Glühen zu bringen.

De Filippi is the music director of the Da Ponte Ensemble: with the DPE he has recorded Giacinto Cornachioli’s La Diana Schernita of 1629, for the label Bongiovanni. In 2012 a Cd of rare pieces of Ruggero Leoncavallo, Brise de mer, and in 2013 a selection of violin and orchestra Fantasias titled Il Violino & l’Opera – Hommage à Verdi, have been released by the label Mediterranea Classica. Luigi has taken part in the first ever recording of music of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, for the label Edipan; For Warner – Fonit he has recorded some orchestral music by Francesco Saverio Mercadante; for Gold & Lebet Delphin Alard’s violin Fantasias based on five Giuseppe Verdi operas.

a dignified portrait of one master of the violin
Klassik heute, 21-5-2013

It is on splendid form, drawing ravishing sounds from his instrument with predominantly sure intonation and with frames of mind to suit each movement of the six sonatas selected. [...] He plays with muscular virtuosity, sublime lyricism and with commenddable spontaneity and timing, admirably fulfilling Tartini's maxim: "To play well, one must sing well."
The Strad, 01-4-2013

He allows Tartini's music breath. His intonation and tone are sure, his manner communicative and poised. [...] This relativly unknown 18th-century repertoire, well worth getting to know, beautifully and tastefully perfomed.
Gramophone, 01-4-2013
