With the dawning of the French Revolution came the reinvention of the guitar. The instrument became an instant success with the listening public of Europe – particularly the middle classes, who used their new power to ensure its starring role in popular music of the period. Among the composers now attracted to writing for the guitar’s expanded range of expression was Filippo Gragnani. The three sonatas included on this compilation make up Op.8, and are brimming with melodic inventiveness: composed for violin and guitar, they perfectly encapsulate Gragnani’s style – maintaining a delicate balance between the rigour of classical Viennese elegance, Italian cantabile and the energy of galant music. This charming collection of works offers a fascinating glimpse into the wealth of repertoire composed for the guitar, one of the most popular instruments of the Napoleonic period. Featuring performances full of gusto and aplomb, the recording comprises a worthy addition to any serious guitarist’s library.
