Artists: Marie Rouquié, Josèphe Cottet, Yoann Moulin
Composer: Giuseppe Tartini, Pietro Nardini
Tartini was a major personality of his period, a virtuoso violinist, a prolific composer, an excellent teacher. His main objective was singularly clear: to train, to master and summon as often as possible the small something that moves the listener on hearing music. Tartini termed this la verità di natura.
One of the objectives of this recording is to present several well-chosen examples of an essential performance practice: what Tartini himself termed cantabilità strumentale, the art of ornamenting slow movements. The four pieces by Giuseppe Tartini recorded here each represent a period of his life.
