× The Glorious Violin journey begins in the generation before J. S. Bach: through the ingenuity of such composer-virtuosi as Carlo Farina, Marco Uccellini, and Pietro Antonio Locatelli, the violin evolved from the modest fiddle of street musicians to the voice of musical nobility. These early violin innovators can fairly be viewed as forerunners to Arcangelo Corelli, a renowned violinist and composer who represents the birth of the tradition of instrumental excellence, and whose beloved Christmas Concerto concludes the disc. Next to the works of these early innovators, Disc I also features one of the iconic masterpieces of the instrument’s repertoire, Tartini’s famous Devil’s Trill Sonata.
