In this recording of Wagenseil’s Six Sonatas, the two upper strings, of the violin (played by Paola Nervi) and the cello (Antonio Colocchia), are joined by the Violone of Matteo Cicchitti, director of the Italian ensemble Musica Elegentia, founded in 2012. Cicchitti plays a 16-foot-five-string violone tuned C-E-A-d-g. The recorded sound is top-class, remarkably natural and clear, without the slightest inappropriate resonance, so that one can hear each of the three instruments clearly and appreciate the conversational interplay of voices in Wagenseil’s writing. Indeed, the sound on this disc, made in the church of SS. Salvatore in Salle, is so good that recording engineer Maurizio Paciariello deserves a special mention.
