We are herewith presenting the third CD of the complete harpsichord work (18 Sonatas in total) by Giovanni Benedetto Platti (Padua 1697 - Wuerzburg 1763). We have therefore the chance to listen from Sonata X up to Sonata XIV. For sure all Platti's work demonstrates his intention to broaden the stylistic horizon of the time, starting from a quintessential Baroque foundation and evolving to touch in edge of Classicism. Fausto Torrefranca, one of the major Italian critcs and the first one to study Platti, wrote in his fundamental and monumental publication "Giovanni Benedetto Platti e la Sonata moderna": "How to portray Giovanni Benedetto Platti […] He was a true artist, it's undoubtly, but he was also a great artist and must take his place in history among the most important authors of instrumental music. […] As far as music for harpsichord is concerned […] his style stands out over that of his contemporaries. To have a clear idea, just choose and read one after another, those works in which he had been able to instill his true personality in the most concise and brilliant way and he conquered a place in the world of the indisputable, the highest sphere of art."

Performing with Lombard and Neaples mandolins
Ensemble Baschenis, Lombard and Neapolitan mandolin, violin, cello, theorbo

Concerto presents the first CD recording world premiere of Violin and Mandolin, accomplices and rivals : music by Giovanni Francesco Giuliani (1760-1818), and Giovanni Hoffmann (end XVIII century).
Giuliani was an excellent violinist, as well as a harpist, master of harpsichord and singing, while Hoffmann was one of the top virtuosi upon the mandolin. They let the two instruments converse together in the same high register. The instrumentarium (rich in instruments: mandolin, violin cello and theorbo) is marked by the presence of two different types of mandolin, the Lombard and the Neapolitan.
The Ensemble Baschenis took the manuscripts of the pieces directly from the archives of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna.

8 pages booklet -Italian, English, Francias, Deutsch

For the first time, a recording - which includes 4 CDs - with the complete Sonatas for harpsichord composed by Giovanni Benedetto Platti (Padua 1697 - Wuerzburg 1763).
Among the five Sonatas proposed within this first CD, there are examples of works that are not particularly difficult from a technical point of view as well as examples of extreme virtuosity, most likely to demonstrate all of the expressive capabilities of the instrument. These Sonatas demonstrate all the modern techniques typical of keyboard instruments, as well as some 'special effects' that, in the case of Giovanni Benedetto, remind us that this is the use of the keyboard by a maestro schooled in several sectors of the practice of the eighteenth century music. Generally speaking, regarding the tempo, the first thing that emerges immediately is a marked vivacity and an ardent sense of invention that Torrefranca shortly described with the term, rhythmic impressionism. As to form, a variety of models and structures are used. The first Sonatas offer a four movement cycle and wide ranging pieces, mostly in a monothematic form. Nonetheless, in the overall corpus of these admirable harpsichord works, all possible prototypes of the modern sonata form are present, in fact both bipartite and tripartite structures are herein present, both monothematic and bithematic, often with elaborated segments of varying length, depending on the sonata and of course with respect to the expressive, sometimes dramatic, sense of the composition.
Among the more significant aspects of Platti's pieces for harpsichord, we can find his extraordinary elegant sense of musical instrumental color, as demonstrated through the use of sophisticated, splendid, and effective blending of tones. Just as elegant is the musical writing, a marvelous combination of old techniques contrasting with modern techniques borrowed from the chamber sonatas for strings and the Italian schools for keyboard instruments.
Mainly the texture is essential, in two parts, nonetheless there are a number of harmonically rich and dense passages that recall the concerto grosso of the Venetian School. The execution of the Sonatas in this recording is mostly based on the edition appended to the aforementioned opus by Torrefranca, currently still the most complete and already at that time, subject to modern scientific editorial criteria.

Harpsichord Pascal-Jospeh Taskin, 1769, copy - J.D. Dulcken, copy

"In reference to the biography of Pietro Domenico Paradies (Paradisi) (1707-1791), we have already mentioned it in the preface of the CD dedicated to his first six Sonate di Gravicembalo, published in 1754 by the London publisher John Johnson along with the subsequent ones recorded here.
To underline the importance of the harpsichord (clavicembalo) production of this Neapolitan composer, we would like to remind that, besides the existence of a multitude of manuscript material, there are also numerous productions, following one another, subsequent to the first one, in particular the Parisian one of Le Clerc (1765) and the London ones of Welcker (1770), Blundell (1781), Preston (1790), Longman & Broderip (1790).
It is about an editorial tradition which lasted for about fifteen years, very much indicative of the fame that Paradies reached in both quality of composer and teacher and concert performer. It is not easy to fully appreciate whether the twelve sonatas in the subject have been conceived at the same time or in different periods. The variety of stylistic references, the cross- references to a typical Neapolitan taste as well to the French one, resorting to the technique of Domenico Scarlatti as well as to the one of Johann Christian Bach, would lead us to assume different chronological moments; however it may also be a wisely handled versatility.
In the analysis of these monuments glorifying the triumph of the galant style, another element that would lead us to reflect could be the character typically of "harpsichord" of some works contrasting others with movements typically of the "Piano". (by Filippo E. Ravizza)

Alberto Bologni, violin, Santo Serafino 1734
Giuseppe Fausto Modugno, fortepiano, Johann Schantz 1815

It's known that in the Hoboken catalogue, except for Hob:32 - which has been for a long time considered as the sole authentic Sonata for violin and piano by Haydn and published in Vienna in 1794 by Artaria - there isn't any further Sonata for these instruments; surely a bit surprising since we are talking about the composer who has been from everyone acknowledged as the father of string quartet. However Alberto Bologni and Giuseppe Modugno have discovered within the archives of the Civico Museo Bibliografico in Bologna, the copy of a printed edition dating to the early 1800's which are supposedly including other three Sonatas, i.e. XVa. Among these at least the entire Sonata in C major had been performed by the well-known Italian violinist Sandro Materassi together with his friend Luigi Dallapiccola. Remarkable the fact that both of the last concerts he performed in his career opened with the Sonata in C. Let's leave to the musicologists any discussion to this regard, we should just enjoy this delightful music which is enhanced by the extraordinary instruments which have been used for this recording: an original fortepiano Johann Schantz dated from 1815 (which was considered as the "Stradivari" among fortepianos in Vienna during the 19th century and even Franz Joseph Haydn was fond of such precious instrument) and a beautiful violin Santo Serafino dated from 1734. The recording is well performed by two excellent artists as Giuseppe Modugno and Alberto Bologni who give us moments of real good music.
