Dall'Abaco: Concerti à più Istrumenti, Opera Sesta

The Opera Sesta concludes dall'Abaco's publications, which had begun in 1705 with a collection of twelve sonatas for violin and violoncello and continued, always remaining faithful to instrumental music. Although these are concertos without declaredly solo or concertante instruments, the first violin is allowed brief concertante sections. The Vivaldi models, or more correctly the Italian models of the first half of the century, are evident: extremely fluent writing, rare use of imitative counterpoint, predominance of the melody. A continuation of the Stradivarius series devoted to the complete works of Evaristo Dall'Abaco, a major figure in Italian Baroque instrumental music.
