Pieter Hellendaal was one of the star violinists who – like Geminiani and Veracini – appeared as a soloist during the intermissions of Handel’s operas in London. Exploring Hellendaal’s sonata manuscript in Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum, Johannes Pramsohler brings to light a composer firmly rooted in the Corellian tradition, yet reminiscent of his teacher Tartini in his melodic invention and of Locatelli in his stunningly virtuosic cadenzas.
