Sonata Accademica in E minor Op.2 No. 8 by Francesco Maria Veracini for Violin and Piano. Edited by Lenzewski. Published by Edition Peters.Francesco Maria Veracini was born into a musical family on the 1st February 1690 in the family house on Via Palazzuolo, parish of San Salvadore in Ognissanti, Florence. His grandfather had been one of the first violinistsin Italy. The arrogant and eccentric Florentine, was in his day one of the most sought after musicians in Europe. When he wasn't giving concerttours across Europe he was having his operas produced in London or perf orming at the Dresden court of Augustus the Strong. Even in 1714 his music was compared to the other Italian, Antonio Vivaldi, however unity, formal polish and proportion were not qualities which Veracini aspired to.His extravagant music, matched by his equally extravagant manner is cha racterised by limitless exuberance.
