"Una Lagrima". Sonatas "a quattro" nos 3 & 6. Duets for cello and double bass

Ensemble Explorations, Roel Dieltiens
    • Apple Music

    With the twelve-year-old Gioachino Rossini’s Sonate a Quattro nos.3 and 6 the complete cycle of these pieces is now available on harmonia mundi. Also included here are three rare jewels of chamber music by the mature composer: the Serenata (1823), the Duo for cello and double bass (1824), and the Una lagrima Variations for cello and piano. The latter piece shows that even in old age he was incapable of renouncing his theatrical wit, his magnificent cantilenas, and above all his opera buffa style.
    This title was released for the first time in 2004.
