This is what we can define a demoniac performance even without taking any reference to the subject of the disc. The three Florentine musicians are certainly at their ease between pulses and dynamic variety while always keeping faith with the text and the tradition of baroque repertoire. Lead violinist Antonio Aiello is a very gifted and refined musician.
Registration, as always, is 100% natural, and leads the listener to a real, thorough enjoyment. One of the best recordings by sound engineer Alessandro Simonetto ever!

The ensemble, Sonatori Fiorentini (literally, Florentine musicians), was born in 2004 out of a desire to re-read the baroque repertoire, revisited according to the latest achievements of philology and, thus as a way of making music brilliant, whimsical, almost extravagant, totally stripped of that heaviness and drama born from the anachronistic legacy of nineteenth-century taste.

Though it was recently formed, the group has already performed numerous concerts in Italy and abroad. Their performances include the prestigious concert Seasons organized by Ceresio Estate in Lugano, Lucca Città degli Organi promoted by the "Domenico di Lorenzo" Association in Lucca, "Invito alla Musica" in Rome, and "ArteinMusica" promoted by the “Rapallo Musica” Association.

The Sonatori Fiorentini have recorded for the Italian recording company, OnClassical.
