Label: Channel Classics
Rachel Podger (violin), Marcin Swiatkiewicz (harpsichord), Daniele Caminiti (theorbo)
Composed by: Perla Barocca - Early Italian Masterpieces
Violinist Rachel Podger’s Perla Barocca, which features works by ten key composers of the 17th Century, showcases eleven sublime examples of early Italian Baroque chamber music. Some of these composers dominated the repertory; others left behind only a handful of works. Here, they come together to convey the diverse musical landscape at an excitingly rich and creative point in history. Podger is supported by harpsichordist and organist Marcin Swiatkiewicz and Daniele Caminiti on theorbo.
