“Stranger of 18th century” : sonatas by P.A. Locatelli, J.M.Leclair, A. Vivaldi, F.Geminiani,Rossi, G.F.Handel.

This program of ensemble “Violini Capricciosi” consists of wonderful pieces by famous composers of 18th century unite with one idea: all these composes worked and lived not in their own country. But different reasons they all moved to different countries and there become well known composers. P. A. Locatelli moved to Amsterdam in 1729 and became famous 18th century Dutch violin player, teacher and publisher. He was a master of the violin; his traditional reputation was the “Paganini of 18th century”. From several reliable source we know that P.A. Locatelli and J.M.Leclair (both were famous violin players of 18th century and both travel a lot in Europe) meat ones in Kassel around 1727 in court. This meeting and performance may have been an enactment of battle between French and Italian styles of playing violin. Leclair played “like an Angel” and Locatelli “like devil”; Leclair employed extreme rhythm is freedom and moved listeners by beauty of his tone, while Locatelli astonished listeners with a deliberately scratchy tone and left-hand pyrotechnics. For several years Leclair were maestro di capella in The Hague. A.Vivaldi –original and influential Italian composer, the pioneer of orchestra programmer music last years of his life spend abroad. For G.F. Handel it is difficult to say which country he belongs to. Still this question asks Germany, Italy and Great Britain.

The program of Violini Capricciosi consist of masterpieces by these famous composers and full of power and brilliance, surprise and pleasure at the same time.
