'A collection of Italian delights … [Durante's] Concerto No 8, La Pazzia, sounds like Vivaldi gone bananas … The Raglan Baroque Players aren't the starriest of groups but on the evidence of this disc they ought to be' (The Times)

'A delightful aural dessert cart … will offer much pleasure, even on repeated hearings, and the legendary Hyperion sound is another plus' (Fanfare, USA)

Sonata in A major
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The little Sonata in A major by Pergolesi is taken from a collection of authenticated instrumental music by the composer. It consists only of one short movement written on two staves and probably intended for keyboard. In this performance, though, it is played by violin and cello. Its engaging melodic ideas are of immediate appeal.
