About the album

This new recording by Matteo Cicchitti and his ensemble Musica Elegentia is devoted to Michele Mascitti, a Baroque composer who, already in his time, was particularly esteemed and rightly considered a major testimonial of Italian instrumental music in France in the 18th century. In particular, this world premiere recording of his Triosonatas op. 1, published in Paris in 1704, spotlights the composer's attempt to recall the tradition of the Corellian sonata, while complying with the French 'gout' of the dedicatee, the Duke d'Orléans.

Diese neue Aufnahme von Matteo Cicchitti und seinem Ensemble Musica Elegentia ist Michele Mascitti gewidmet, einem Barockkomponisten, der schon zu seiner Zeit besonders geschätzt wurde und zu Recht als wichtiges Zeugnis der italienischen Instrumentalmusik im Frankreich des 18. Diese Weltersteinspielung seiner Triosonaten op. 1, die 1704 in Paris veröffentlicht wurden, beleuchtet insbesondere den Versuch des Komponisten, die Tradition der corellianischen Sonate wieder aufzugreifen und gleichzeitig dem französischen "gout" des Widmungsträgers, des Herzogs d'Orléans, gerecht zu werden.

The Sonate a tre by Michele Maschitti - Disc CHALLENGE CLASSICS CC72979: Michele Mascitti / SONATE A TRE, OP. 1 / Musica Elegentia, dir. Matteo Cicchitti
Rai Radio 3, 09-5-2024

The proposal signed by Musica Elegentia and its leader Matteo Cicchitti stands out for its interpretative wisdom and high quality of recording and certainly constitutes a reference album and a fixed point in the valorization of Mascitti's music and an example of research methodology in times in which the the past seems to be worth less than the present.
RSI, 29-4-2024

Once again, the result is exquisitely crafted, thanks to a dynamic that is an example of cleanliness and naturalness, without lacking energy and speed.
