Click on cover to hear Fantini's
Balletto detto il Lunati
for clarino and organ.


The Music of Italy--
Baroque music originally written for trumpet and organ, with Thomas Freas, clarino (valveless baroque trumpet), and Timothy Lewis, organ. 

Literature by Fantini, Frescobaldi, Gabrieli and Viviani.

"If you’re tired of the same old baroque concerto grossi, try these authentic duos for clarino and organ. The combination of attractive music, clever juxtaposition of composers, and surprisingly varied timbres from both instruments, gives the CD an appealing freshness."
~ Robert Sherman, The New York Times

The ensemble, performing on historically accurate instruments, presents modern-day premieres of literature specifically written for clarino (valveless baroque trumpet), two baroque violins and basso continuo (baroque contrabass and harpsichord).

Literature by Biber, Corbett, Corelli,  Legrenzi, Marini and Merula.

“Thom Freas combines a dark and full baroque trumpet sound with smooth, lyrical phrasing that brings to mind Armando Ghitalla . . . The strings and the harpsichord also tend towards the dark and mellow in their sound and approach, creating a unified ensemble with a gentle baroque style which is surprisingly relaxing to listen to.” 
~ Flora Newberry, Historic Brass Society
