5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David A. Wend on October 18, 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Rachel Barton Pine, John Mark Rozendaal and David Schrader began playing together in 1996 and enjoyed their first collaboration so much they formed Trio Settecento. Being from the Chicago area, all three names are familiar to me from the local musical scene. This disc, An Italian Sojourn, concentrates on the rising popularity of the violin from the 17th century on and how the human voice influences the writing for the instrument.

The music recorded begins with a Sonata by Dario Castello, who demonstrates the new vocalization writing for the violin. The Sinfonia that follows by Alessandro Stradella and the short Sonata by Biagio Marini further explores the beauty of this new technique. The Sonata da camera by Pietro Locatelli brings the program forward to the 18th century with the ornamental writing that developed following the career of Arcangelo Corelli. Locatelli also changed the sonata order around from a slow-fast-slow format to a slow movement followed by a fast movement and ending with an aria.

The Sonata in C major op 5 No 3 by Corelli is a beautiful example of how the Italian master turned the violin into a singing instrument, resembling the human voice. The five movement sonata is an exquisite example of ornamental writing for the violin. Listening to the music does not surprise one that Corelli came to be imitated by practically all of his contemporaries, such as Geminiani. The brief Sonata in G minor by George Frederic Handel, recorded on this disc, beautifully shows the ornamental writing for the violin, much in the style of Corelli. The Sonata Pastorale by Giuseppe Tartini is an example of the violin mimicking another instrument, in this case the bagpipes played by shepherds.
