The virtuoso, sometimes eccentric violin music of the Neapolitan-born and English-by-choice Nicola Matteis (ca. 1650 - ca. 1714) is the focus of the recording of the renowned baroque violinist Veronika Skuplik
and the lutenist Andreas Arend with FRA BERNARDO. They trace the baroque, virtuoso gesture of the music and transform it into a kind of travelogue from Naples to London to Norfolk.
