Giovanni Benedetto Platti (ca.1690 or 1697-1763) was a court musician in Würzburg and Bamberg from 1722 to the end of his life. He is thus one of the composers whose oeuvre is selectively documented in the Denkmäler der Tonkunst in Bayern. The volume offers six violoncello concertos and six trio sonatas in which the cello, next to the violin, is given pronounced solo functions. The selection criteria – altogether 28 cello concertos and 20 trio sonatas by Platti have been transmitted – give priority to works that had previously not been published. The present volume thus contains exclusively first editions.
