more Marcello recordings from Michael Hovnanian

Michael Hovnanian has continued to add new movements to his multi-track recordings of the Marcello sonatas.  Michael has been taking the six Marcello sonatas and recording solo and continuo lines for each of them.  It’s a great project to follow along with, not only for the musical results (which are great), but also for the commentary that Michael includes at each stage of the recording process.  There’s a blog post included with the recording of each movement, and I highly recommend following along as you listen–it really adds a lot.

You can learn more about Michael’s project and follow along on his blog, and you can check out all of the recordings he has completed here.  Start with the first post if you haven’t checked it out yet and go from there.
