Album of the Week

4/8 - 4/14 | Enjoy 25% off Cedille's Featured Release of the Week!


An Italian Sojourn

We launch this week’s album feature on April 8, birthday of Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini (1692–1770), whose music appears on two Cedille albums: his famous “Devil’s Trill” Sonata on Rachel Barton Pine’s Instrument of the Devil, and his Sonata Pastorale on her Trio Settecento disc, An Italian Sojourn (and also incorporated in the ensemble’s specially priced, 4-CD boxed set titled Grand Tour — likewise discounted 25% off this week). Both pieces show off Tartini’s amazing imaginativeness. In the case of the Pastoral Sonata, this is applied toward the use of folk music and imitating shepherds’ instruments such as bagpipe drones. This is particularly evident in the Sonata’s concluding Largo, which you can audition HERE as performed by Trio Settecento (Rachel Barton Pine, violin; David Schrader, harpsichord; John Mark Rozendaal, cello).

Every week Cedille President and Grammy-winning producer Jim Ginsburg selects a featured CD which is offered at a discounted price. Sign up for our e-newsletter and never miss an Album of the Week.
