The fall of the leaf - English keyboard music on the Rucellai virginal was released with Arcana in 2022. Celebrating the golden age of English keyboard music from the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, this personal anthology features works by the greatest composers of the time. In this recording Giulia plays an exquisite Italian virginal from c. 1575.
Johann Sebastian Bach, The Six Partitas.
The Six Partitas BWV 825-830, published individually from 1726, then as a collection in the Clavier Übung of 1731, were instantly recognized as the pinnacle of keyboard writing. The compositions combine elements of Italian form and French style. Giulia Nuti, renowned for her performances of the French clavicinistes as well as Italian repertoire, brings these stylistic elements to the heart of her interpretation, resulting in a completely original vision of the great Master.
The choice of instrument - Christian Kuhlmann's replica of the splendid 1751 harpsichord by Henri Hemsch - emphasizes the richness and resonance of the sound.
Giulia's book The performance of Italian basso continuo (Ashgate, 2007) is cited as an essential text for performers and scholars of basso continuo.
