This extraordinary four movement work lends itself beautifully for the study of Italian Baroque music.
Gabrielli was one of the first composers to write substantial music for solo cello. This work is from around 1680 and follows the typical slow-fast-slow-fast structure.
Gabrielli's music is full of contrast; lyrical expressiveness changes with exciting question and answer motifs.
