Omega Music

As well as being internationally recognized as a leading interpreter of music new and old, Peter Sheppard Skærved is the only violinist to have performed on the personal violins of Viotti, Paganini, Joachim, Kreisler and Ole Bull. He is a renowned soloist, musicologist, writer, painter and educator at the Royal Academy, and in 2022 appointed as Honorary Professor at the Royal Northern College of Music. This album features perhaps some of the best (certainly best-known) works by the top two violin composers working in Modena, Italy, at the end of the 17th century. Vitali and Colombi were both quite prolific and produced pieces of wide variety of form, not whittled down to the standard 'dance suite' of the middle and late baroque. While the Vitali works have been recorded previously in a version for ensemble, this is the first recording of the pieces in their solo format - and the same applies to the Colombi and anonymous pieces. The album is a fine and fitting sequel to Skærved's previous solo recording "Florish in the Key" (Athene ATH 23211) which presented contemporaneous (late 17th century) solo violin music from London.
