- Featured: Artemandoline Baroque Ensemble
- Release Date: 10/29/2013
Featuring works ranging from the smaller-scale K77 to the ambitious and technically demanding K88 - which is extremely well suited to the mandolin thanks to it's four-part chords and dynamic nuances - this disc offers a radical reinterpretation of this captivating music. Formed in 2001, Artemandoline has worked tirelessly over the years towards the revival of the mandolin, giving new prominence to and widening the repertoire of this beautiful and unfairly neglected instrument. Artemandoline is acclaimed by audiences and critics alike for it's rigorous and scrupulously researched, yet fresh, spontaneous and exciting performances. This is the ensemble's first recording for Brilliant Classics; a second disc of mandolin music from 18th-century Paris will follow later in 2013.
