LANZETTI CELLO SONATAS RECORDING
My name is Agnieszka Oszanca, I am Italy based Polish baroque cellist. After many years of concert performances given solo as well as a member of distinguished European early music ensembles, having recorded multiple CDs with my chamber music groups and orchestras, I have finally decided to record a solo CD, completely devoted to my instrument and the music written by one of the most extraordinary cellist in the history of the Violoncello.
Together with a group of the most fantastic musicians from Poland and Italy, we will soon (January 2019) record six sonatas by Salvatore Lanzetti, one of my favourite 18th-century cellists-composers. I will be accompanied by Fabio Bonizzoni on harpsichord Maria Misiarz on cello and Gabriele Palomba on theorbo. The recording sessions will take place in a charming Italian city of Crema and will be recorded by Andrea Friggi in the role of our sound technician! The CD will be published in spring 2019 by the esteemed Dutch label Challenge Records. It is a truly international project!
A good CD recording is always costly, the budget includes:
- the costs of the venue rental fee
- the costs of the publisher (label)
- recording technician's fee
- the fees of musicians, including flights and lodging
-transport of the instruments and recording equipment to the venue, and this time it will also include the costs of the awards which will be granted to you for supporting our cause!
The sum of 6500 euros is the minimum of what we need in order to make it happen. We will be most grateful for your help and donations, even the smallest. In return, you can expect that this project will be crowned with a high-quality recording of the beautiful, exciting repertoire, not very well known to the general public. Some of those pieces are true jewels. And there is more! Those who will help us by offering the most generous support can expect some really special treats, even a private concert performance!
