Notes & Reviews:

A highly interesting CD of wonderful music from an important period in time, when the House of Habsburg contributed to the flourishing of music by having many talented composers working as hofkapellmeisters at this Court. Composer Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and his German and Italian composer-colleagues (Schmelzer & Co.) left us a wide range of beautiful baroque works.

"The Challenge Classics disc Schmelzer & Co: Music at the Habsburg Court is never dull; it's quite engrossing, actually, employing a wide range of pieces that would have been used at the courts of all three Habsburg monarchs in the 17th century: Ferdinand II, Ferdinand III, and Leopold I. Caecilia-Concert works hard to keep a sense of variety in the program, even devoting a rather lengthy track to harpsichordist Kathryn Cok as a solo feature[This recording] makes it clear that the combination of Baroque brass instruments and fiddles - long regarded as impossible to blend owing to their relative volume levels - can be compatible in a chamber setting and, in certain literature, possibly preferred." - All Music Guide
