Founder member of the acclaimed Baroque trio Fantasticus, and celebrated up-and-coming violinist, Rie Kimura, makes a sensational solo debut with this thrilling selection of four virtuosic violin sonatas.

Joined by Baroque cellist Robert Smith and harpsichordist Guillermo Brachetta from Fantasticus, Kimura presents scintillating works by Italian eighteenth-century luminaries Giuseppe Tartini (including his famous Devil’s Trill sonata) and Francesco Maria Veracini.

'This is an utterly enchanting recording from beginning to end [...] Rie Kimura draws the listener into her intimate sound world, with gently caressing bow strokes, neatly shaping the most virtuosic passages with effortless ease.'

Early Music Review

'These are delightfully clean performances of some exemplary repertoire for violin. [...] Keep an eye out for them, as they are hot as loaves straight from your local forno a legna.'
MusicWeb International

' [...] she characterises each movement carefully, highlighting Veracini’s harmonic, contrapuntal and expressive detail, and revelling in the elastic bowing of the Allegro assai. The resonant recording is exemplary.'
The Strad

'[...] the 'devilish' finale possesses rhythmic momentum, expressive subtlety and expressions of great virtuosity; elsewhere she also shows an endearing sense of musical joy with which she fascinates and entertains the listener'
