Telemann: Works For Violins Without Bass
Format: COMPACT DISC
Tampieri, Alessandro; Begelman, Boris; Onofri, Enrico; Imaginarium Ensemble
“Sharp violins proclaim their jealous pangs and desperation, fury, frantic indignation, depths of pain, and height of passion, for the fair disdainful dame”. These words inspired Enrico Onofri to elaborate a program focused on the violin and its ability to express such contrasting passions and moods. Imaginarium Ensemble temporarily disposed of its bass section and became a 'sharp band' of solo violins. Italian violinist and conductor Enrico Onofri specializes in Baroque music, and is often invited to participate in ensembles such as La Capella Reial de Catalunya and the Concentus Musicus Wien. He has performed across Europe and Japan as both a violinist and a conductor.
