 Hans Knut Sveen Soloist

Giovanni Benedetto Platti had his musical apprenticeship in Venice, where his teachers may have included older contemporaries such as Vivaldi. From 1722 until his death in 1763 he was employed at the episcopal court in Würzburg, described as an oboist and violinist, greatly respected for his virtuosity. His Flute Sonatas, presumably composed over a number of years, range from the late baroque to the early classical in style.

"...The performances are technically assured, and the expressive and sometimes quite dramatic features of these sonatas are thoroughly exploited. One of the highlights is the largo of the Sonata No. 2, which contains vivid contrasts... These sonatas by Platti fully deserve to be played on the concert platform and one can only be grateful that they have been recorded by these artists..."
