Artist: Mealli / Saladin
Format: CD

More Info:

We are proud to release the first disc of Baroque violinist Eva Saladin on Challenge Classics. For her debut on our label, Eva has chosen the scantly known sonatas by Pandolfi Mealli, an apparently marginal figure in the richest violin landscape of the 17th Century However Pandolfi Mealli was indeed a uique composer, the only one who was able to combine the Italian school of the first half of the century (Castello, Marini) with the later Austrian flowering (Biber, Schmelzer). The sonatas recorded here were published in 1660 and carry a wide range of characters and atmosphere, a diversity enhanced by the different combinations of continuo chosen by Eva Saladin.
