Giuseppe Clemente Dall'Abaco (1710-1805) was the son of the violinist and composer Evaristo Felice Dall'Abaco and a virtuoso on the violoncello who was highly regarded throughout Europe. His cello sonatas, recorded here for the first time, impress not only with their technical brilliance, but also with their exceptionally melodious slow movements, in which the natural beauty of the cello sound is shown to it's best effect. Fascinated by the cello's origins and the creative process of new music, Elinor Frey plays both period and modern instruments. Her recent release on the Belgian label Passacaille, Berlin Sonatas with Lorenzo Ghielmi on fortepiano, was nominated for a Juno award for Best Classical Album, Solo & Chamber Music and won the 2015 Québec Opus Prize for Early Music Album of the year. Her first Baroque release, La voce del violoncello, was praised for it's "careful scholarship and brilliant layering of moods and tempos" (Toronto Star) and for the "honest, reflective beauty of her music making" (Strings). Her performance of this program was the winner of the public prize at the 2013 Utrecht Early Music Festival Fringe. In May 2017, she released Fiorè, the world premiere recording of the sonatas of Angelo Maria Fiorè and various unknown Italian arias, performed alongside Lorenzo Ghielmi and Suzie LeBlanc.
