Significant knowledge exists nowadays in baroque performance although students do not usually have the possibility to work deeper into the essential sources by themselves. Therefore I took the advantage of this artistic research to develop a historically informed and personal interpretation of Domenico Gabrielli (1659- 1690) cello repertoire (1st and 7th ricercar and third movement, Largo, of his sonata in G major), playing on my modern instrument but always with the perspective of baroque comprehension.
Articulation, ornaments, passions, tempo and dynamics have been the essential formal elements to work on these pieces, especially concerning the ends of 17th century in Italy. Talking about results, I strongly believe that this new information automatically operate within our natural musical taste and helps to achieve a not only documented but also convinced interpretation. In consequence at the end of this process, I am completely able to apply this acquired knowledge to other pieces of the same period 17th and 18th century.
