An exploration of scintillating Italian sonatas by Caldara, Vivaldi, and Lanzetti, with special emphasis on the violoncello da spalla.

“Nowadays the violoncello is also held between the legs.” –– Leopold Mozart, 1756

We take plenty for granted these days. As Mozart’s father suggests, this might include how the cello can be played. As one of few specialists of the violoncello da spalla (a cello held against the shoulder), Twelfth Night member Andrew Gonzalez is in a unique position to illuminate this tantalizing instrument and technique. Featuring Italian Baroque music of vivid drama and expression –– Vivaldi, Lanzetti, and Caldara –– Twelfth Night highlights the brilliance and flexibility of the “shouldered cello.”
