In this conversation Elinor Frey and Marc Vanscheeuwijck narrate their journey into the exploration of the life and music of the Franciscan friar Antonio Vandini, who was the famous violinist Giuseppe Tartini’s lifelong friend and cellist. Working in Padua, both musicians also did numerous concert tours together, and Tartini wrote a couple of cello concertos for Vandini. From this point of departure we began to dig into archives across Europe to discover that Vandini had left us six sonatas for cello and basso continuo, and one cello concerto. Convinced by the quality of this music, we decided to edit and publish Vandini’s complete works, and after a few concert tours in Canada and Italy, in 2019 we recorded all of Vandini’s music for the Belgian label Passacaille.
