Among the numerous musical works by Francesco Geminiani, renowned virtuoso, theorist and versatile composer, the transcriptions for harpsichord are practically unknown. They were transcribed from his own instrumental compositions: Concerti Grossi, Sonatas for Violin and Bass, Sonatas for Cello and Bass as well as Metodi for Violin and for Guitar. This harpsichord production usually escapes the musical writers and critics who deal with this musicial but always in a fragmentary form. Geminiani is rarely mentioned and if so, it's hurried and superficial. The 1762 compositions here are collected into short suites formed of sonata movements originally intended for strings or guitar, they are characterized by a great variety of forms and facets, they range from serious compositions to movements typical of the Baroque sonata.
