The recorder sonatas are taken from a collection of 12 sonatas, printed for the first time in 1712 by G. Sale in Venice. That same year, the 26-year old Marcello became a member of the “Accademia Filarmonica” in Bologna. In 1711 he had already been elected a judge in the “Council of Forty” in Venice. These sonatas were composed by a man who already at the time, but also throughout his later life, had to divide between music and strenuous official duties, and who always called himself a simple “Dilettante della musica”. 
Edited by Jorgen Glode, this edition comes with a solo part, a basso part, as well as a fully realized keyboard part.
