This program of scintillating concerti and trio sonatas features the many Italian composers active in German-speaking cities in the early 18th century. Many of them remain rarely heard; because much of the 20th-c. revival of Baroque music was grounded in nationalism, German music scholarship tended to focus on native German composers while steering away from the talented Italian musicians who had crossed the Alps. Meanwhile, Italian scholarship focused on those Italians who remained south of the Alps, thereby omitting a treasure trove of musical contributions. Bringing these oft-overlooked artists into the spotlight, Newton Baroque performs works by Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello from Bologna, active in Munich and Stuttgart, Evaristo Felice Dall’Abaco from Verona, who worked in Munich, and Giovanni Benedetto Platti of Padua, who spent his career in Würzburg.
