Lucy van Dael, one of the most highly regarded Barqoue violinists in the world, and her prominent continuo players present an exciting part of the history of the violin sonata: The sonatas for violin by the 17th-century vituoso Marco Uccellini, who was active in Modena and Parma.

In the 17th century, the exceptional violinist Uccellini exerted a formative influence on the young genre of the violin sonata through his treatment of embellishments, his use of “affetti,” and his development of virtuoso violin techniques. The result is a highly imaginative, indeed "fantastic” music that has an almost improvisational character.

The four musicians, who are all veterans of the illustrious Dutch early music scene, take up the challenge. Lucy van Dael’s Amati violin produces amazing timbres in this repertoire. Different combinations of harpsichord, organ, lute, and cello are to be heard on the continuo part.

The recording made in the famous Doopsgezindekerk, Haarlem, dispensed with spot microphones, as usual with AEOLUS, resulting in a full, vivid sound.
