Handel Sonatas

Harpsichordist Steven Devine returns to Beverley with the virtuoso violinist Bojan Čičić in a programme melding the violin sonatas of GF Handel with those of the Italian born violinist and composer Giovanni Stefano Carbonelli.

Acclaimed for their sheer exhilarating brilliance, Carbonelli’s sonatas proved him to be so much more than ‘just’ a contemporary of Vivaldi, amply demonstrating the respect in which he was held in his native Italy before setting off to find fame and fortune in England.

Following their recent recordings for Delphian, Bojan and Steven have turned their attention to Handel’s works for violin and harpsichord promising us a multitude of contrasts with flowing and agreeable chamber music, in which the violinist is in musical conversation with the keyboard player.

Čičić’s distinctive sound – sweet, slightly dry and exquisitely centred – is ideal for the taut beauty of Carbonelli’s solo lines.” BBC Music Choice
