About the album

The life of Francesco Maria Veracini (1690-1768) could be summarized as the story of a violinist who was present in the main European cultural centers of the s. XVIII century to show his instrumental mastery and virtuosity. Florence, London, Dresden, Venice ... Everything seems to indicate that he had an eccentric and arrogant character, with enough intensity to make his way of playing something completely genuine. According to Burney, around 1733 there was no concert in London in which he did not participate with a violin solo. Giovanni Maria Casani, one of his teachers, expressed his opinion about him and his father: “Playing the violin together. One, old and full of honors, the other young and wanting to show the ease with which he overcame any slightest obstacle in the score. It was wonderful for everyone to listen to them, because the heart, and not just the bravery, guided and accompanied the fingers and the bow of these virtuosos”.

The collection published in 1716 has twelve sonatas for violin or recorder and basso continuo, a "small essay on my musical studies", is dedicated with much gratitude to the Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony, who supported Veracini to secure a position as a violinist at the Dresden court, despite the fact that no violinist was needed at the time, a circumstance that produced more than notable tensions with Volumier, the conductor of the Dresden orchestra.
Das Leben von Francesco Maria Veracini (1690-1768) könnte man als die Geschichte eines Geigers zusammenfassen, der in den wichtigsten europäischen Kulturzentren des XVIII. Jahrhunderts präsent war, um seine instrumentale Meisterschaft und Virtuosität zu zeigen. Florenz, London, Dresden, Venedig ... Alles scheint darauf hinzudeuten, dass er einen exzentrischen und hochmütigen Charakter hatte, mit genug Intensität, um seine Art zu spielen zu etwas völlig Echtem zu machen. Laut Burney gab es um 1733 kein Konzert in London, an dem er nicht mit einem Violinsolo beteiligt war. Giovanni Maria Casani, einer seiner Lehrer, äußerte sich über ihn und seinen Vater: "Sie spielten zusammen Geige. Der eine alt und voller Ehren, der andere jung und mit der Leichtigkeit, mit der er jedes noch so kleine Hindernis in der Partitur überwinden wollte. Es war für alle wunderbar, ihnen zuzuhören, denn das Herz, und nicht nur der Mut, leitete und begleitete die Finger und den Bogen dieser Virtuosen".

Die 1716 erschienene Sammlung enthält zwölf Sonaten für Violine oder Blockflöte und Basso continuo, eine "kleine Abhandlung über meine musikalischen Studien" und ist in großer Dankbarkeit dem Kurfürsten Friedrich August I. von Sachsen gewidmet, der Veracini dabei unterstützte, eine Stelle als Violinist am Dresdner Hof zu erhalten, obwohl zu dieser Zeit kein Geiger gebraucht wurde, ein Umstand, der zu mehr als bemerkenswerten Spannungen mit Volumier, dem Dirigenten des Dresdner Orchesters, führte.
