Dr Jasmin Cameron's third critical edition of Giovanni Maria Ruggieri's music (Trio Sonatas, Op. 4) was published by A-R Editions, USA last month.
Ruggieri (ca. 1669–1714) lived and worked in Venice, and his Suonate da chiesa, op. 4 (Venice: Giuseppe Sala, 1697) are preserved in the Musiksammlung of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna. Although Ruggieri remained an amateur musician, this set of sonatas shows that he was a highly accomplished composer.The present edition enables musicians to explore these fine works, contributing to an understanding of the da chiesa repertoire in late-seventeenth-century Italy and aiding the rediscovery of an unjustly neglected composer.
