Musician's or Publisher's Notes
One of the 18th century’s most outrageous musical personalities, Veracini was a brilliant and well-traveled performer, and infamous for his insufferable arrogance and madness. Many contemporaries called him the Capo Pazzo (crazy head), and once, he may have even jumped out a window in a fit of rage, which left him with a permanent limp, after being upstaged by a rival violinist in Dresden. His equally eclectic Sonate Accademiche reject the prevailing Corellian sonata form in favor of five diverse movements, and feature virtuosic violin writing imbued with a passion befitting the fiery temperament of their storied composer.
