The Uccellini Project

https://youtu.be/hAJjRm3JVtI CONOR GRICMANIS, AND HIS ENSEMBLE NOWODE, ARE EXCITED ABOUT EMBARKING ON THEIR FIRST RECORDING PROJECT OF MARCO UCCELLINI’S OP.4 AND OP.5, PUBLISHED IN VENICE IN 1645 AND 1649.

 

CONOR FIRST FELL IN LOVE WITH THESE SONATAS WHEN HE WAS UNDER THE TUTELAGE OF RACHEL PODGER AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF MUSIC DURING HIS UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES, AND HAS SINCE FOUND A NICHÉ FOR 17TH CENTURY AND STYLUS FANTASTICUS VIOLIN PERFORMANCE.

 

AFTER YEARS OF PLANNING, CONOR IS DETERMINED TO PURSUE HIS DREAM OF RECORDING THESE BEAUTIFUL, AND SCARSELY RECORDED, SONATAS WITH THE RECORDING COMPANY CHIARO.
