This album marks the rediscovery of one of the most important composers of the Italian Baroque: Carlo Francesco Cesarini (1666-1741?), a virtuoso violinist also known as Carlo del Violino. The six previously unreleased cantatas on this recording were composed in the early 18th century and regularly performed between 1700 and 1717. They are all taken from Manuscript 2248 of the Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome, a rich anthological collection assembled for Cardinal Pamphili, a major figure in Roman cultural life.
