Chamber music of flowing melody and unalloyed charm from the golden age of the Classical period.
On this new recording, the flautist Stefano Parrino is joined by his brother, the Viotti expert and violinist Francesco Parrino, as well as Luca Ranieri (viola) and Maria Cecilia Berioli (cello) who, as the Viotti String Quartet, have recorded the composer’s complete works in that medium for Brilliant Classics (95264). The set met with a warm critical reception for its ‘top-notch’ musicians (Fanfare).
Giovanni Battista Viotti (1755–1824) was one of the leading Italian violin virtuosos in the period between Tartini and Paganini. Having settled in Paris in 1782, he became a teacher of such influence that he is now counted the founder of the French violin school, though he moved to London in 1792, where he remained for the rest of his life, performing as a soloist in Salomon’s concerts and forging a friendship with Haydn.
