Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Maurizio Cazzati established San Petronio in Bologna as an important centre for performing and printing concerted music, vocal and instrumental. The three trumpet sonatas in Op 35 are scored for trumpet, four-part strings and continuo, using the violin, two viola and bass layout. Cazzati states that they can be performed with the trumpet muted, which raises the pitch of the instrument (and the key of the string parts) to D; we have followed his suggestion since we offer a ‘chamber’ performance one-to-a-part instead of one employing the large forces that were available in San Petronio.
