The inspired decision by cellist and composer Giovanni Sollima to investigate the instrumental music of his 18th century counterpart Giovanni Battista Costanzi has led to its first recording, a collection of cello sonatas. Costanzi’s place in the history of the cello has all but slipped from view and yet he displays a remarkable freshness in handling the late Baroque sonata genre as instigated by Arcangelo Corelli. Costanzi imposes substantial technical demands upon the soloist, including playing in the instrument’s highest register, making powerful use of the cello’s expressive capabilities. Sollima chose five sonatas scored for cello and continuo, featured here alongside one of his own compositions, which reflects the labours of an apparently marginal member of the Roman court in the time of Costanzi’s patron. Sollima is joined on the album by the Arianna Art Ensemble and fellow cellist Monika Leskovar, who appears on a pair of sonatas for two cellos.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
