Vivaldi: Manchester Violin Sonatas
Label: Leaf Music
Knox, Hank; Fewer, Mark
Mark Fewer and Hank Knox are well-known personalities in Canada. Both versatile musicians, they have performed throughout North America and are known for imparting a unique signature to their performances. Offering fresh and exciting interpretation of works from the past. This collection of exciting but little-known works for violin and harpsichord is thought to have been first penned by Antonio Vivaldi in 1726. However, the works were unknown until a manuscript was found in Manchester’s Central Library in 1976 and to date, few recordings of the complete collection exist. This is the first recording of the works by Canadian artists. The Sonatas were arranged and recorded by Fewer and Knox in January 2019 at Église St. Augustin, Mirabel, QC.
