World-renowned Guitarist/lutenist Richard Savino masterfully shares his interpretive magic and virtuosity on his first release with Sono Luminus. This recording features six sonatas from Capricci Armonicci (Harmonic Caprices 1692) by Count Ludovico Roncalli (1654-1713). The music is described by Savino as “….possessing Italianate lyricism combined with a French textural aesthetic.” Consisting of nine ‘suites’ organized by key, it is one of the last publications of Italian music for the five-course baroque guitar printed during this period.

These sonatas, having first been transcribed by Italian Musicologist Oscar Chilosotti 1881, are well known to modern classical guitarists and have long been unavailable on baroque guitar. They are performed on an elegantly crafted instrument copied from an original Antonio Stradavari by José Espejo. The combination of Savino’s technique, interpretation and the beautifully crafted instrument make this album a sonic treat and a must have for all guitar lovers.
