Caldara is a highly underrated composer who wrote some must-have vocal and instrumental works. These chamber works are delicate and melodious, providing for plenty of rewarding listening for early Music fans. Nicely recorded and performed too. Even if the music is not quite in the top echelon alongside the likes of Telemann or Handel, it's pretty damn likeable.

In past, I knew Caldara and like his music because of his oratorios and cantatas. Until listenning this record, I found Caldara was also a good instrumental composer and treat him as one of great composers list. Comparing with Handel, Bach, I think caldara could get more honor on his sonatas music, and paied more attention.
If you never touched Caldara, I would suggest you to try; if you had been a lover of his other musics, I thought you should get this in your pool.

Antonio Caldara (c. 1670-1736) was one of the best known and esteemed composers of his times, not only in Italy but in Europe. He was as prolific as Vivaldi but his output was virtually all vocal music, such as operas, cantatas, and oratorios. According to the liner notes, he produced just four instrumental compositions, the Op. 1 Trio Sonatas of 1693, Op. 2 Chamber Sonatas of 1699, Cello Sonatas of 1735, and Sonatas da Camera (between 1700-1735); these performances consist mainly of the Op. 1 works & several Cello Sonatas.

Parnassi Musici is a wonderful period instrument group dedicated to this repertoire, especially in uncovering some of the rarer (meanly undiscovered and/or under performed) works from the Baroque era - I own a number of their other recordings and can only vouch for their excellence. In these Caldara performances, the members interweave the various instruments beautifully capturing the composer's renowned contrapuntal writing - the instruments are well recorded with the stage presence being integrated and up front.

Although this might certainly serve as 'background' music (as did much of the 'table music' written during this period), more concentrated listening will reveal the intricacies and beauty of this music. If you know Caldara only for his vocal writing, then a sampling of his 'small' instrumental output is worth exploring - this recording is warmly recommended for admirers of Baroque chamber music.

This work by Caldara is perfect for reading, socializing with friends, or relaxing with a nice wine, cheese, and nuts. Let it play in the background like an audio mental massage. A pleasurable recording from a less know composer.

Good performances by artists ! Great sound Parnassi Musici !

Good day Friends!
