Sonata a Preghiera
I Palpiti, Non piuí mesta
Nel cor piuí non mi sento
Cantabile in Re Mag.
Capricci n. 2, 14, 21
One of the greatest composers of the late Baroque era, the first violin virtuoso and his most disquieting "The Devil's Trill": legend says he composed it after dreaming that the devil appeared at his bedside, playing the violin with great ability.

Excerpts from the original CD booklet:

Sonata in Sol Minore "Il Trillo del Diavolo" (The Devilís Trill)
Tradition has it that Tartini composed this Sonata after dreaming about the Devil- Lucifer had appeared at the foot of his bed and played the violin with great verve and expertise. The sonata begins with an
Larghetto affettuoso based upon a linear melody. In the second movement an Allegro presto, arpeggios, and sequences of sound distant from each other constitute intricate passages of frequent mordents which require notable performing skill. In the third movement we encounter the famous "trill" a piece which involves notable difficulty in its execution: the left hand plays two parts at the same time, the "trill" on one string an the melody on the others.

Sonata in Sol minore Op.1 nį10 "Didone abbandonata" "Didone abbandonata" was written during the first creative period of the composer and it is the most famous of Tartiniís sonatas after " The Devilís Trill". Its fame is due to its depth of expression and to its reliance upon the words of the play of the same title by Metastasio. Like the "trill" this work is in G minor, with bipartite tempos and ritornellos.
