Nowadays nobody seems to remember about Pietro Nardini (1722-1793), but during his lifetime his renown was great, reaching beyond the boundaries of his native Italy. The recordings of his works made up to this day have nearly all been fortuitous, often based on unreliable editions. The present CD, on the contrary, offers four of Nardini’s compositions for violin and orchestra - three of which never published before - which have been recorded following criteria that are rigorously faithful to the originals. These are works of excellent musical quality; no less outstanding is the violin writing of this Tuscan composer who, in his day, was considered one of the finest violinists in existence. Leopold Mozart, who heard him in 1763, commented: ”The beauty, purity and evenness of his sound, and the refinement of his cantabile cannot be equalled.”
