Early eighteenth-century Italy had two very eccentric virtuoso violinists making waves in its social and musical circles. Francesco Maria Veracini was said to have great “whim and caprice” and Francesco Geminiani was called ”the furious” by their contemporary Giuseppe Tartini. Both composers were heavily influenced by the celebrated Arcangelo Corelli—Geminiani studied with him directly, while Veracini used his style as a model, particularly for his earlier works—though the sensitive, volatile personalities of these artists shine through in their music to make their styles undoubtedly their own.

To celebrate and highlight the contrast of these styles, violinist Sarah Douglass and harpsichordist Justin Luchinski present a selection of their chamber music repertoire with a nod to their predecessor Corelli.
