      Giovanni Benedetto Platti (1697-1763)

      Sonatas for violoncello, violin and harpsichord

      Sebastian Hess, cello
      Rüdiger Lotter, violin
      Florian Birsak, basso continou

      Giovanni Benedetto Platti, a previously lesser known musician from the first half of the eighteenth century, was an “oboista”, an oboe virtuoso at the Court of the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg. He came from Northern Italy, lived in Venice during his youth, and in 1722 – together with a number of his fellow Italians – responded to the call of the Würzburg regent, who wished to lend his royal chapel the brilliance that only Italian music could provide. Platti came to the city on the Main River; after his employer’s death only two years later, he continued to remain under his successors.

      OehmsClassics is happy to now be publishing Volume 2 of the Platti sonatas (after release of the highly acclaimed Volume 1 with Sebastian Hess and Axel Wolf ). This time, Sebastian Hess invited Rüdiger Lotter and Florian Birsak to accompany him in the recording studio.
