Notes & Reviews:

This release is part of the successful Solo Musica "Birth of ... " series, aimed at presenting to listeners the oldest known compositions of music for solo instruments and formations played on the oldest available and still playable instruments. Played in the way they were originally intended and with an unparalleled virtuosity, this CD represents a journey back through time to the beginnings of the solo repertoire for violin.

MusicWeb International
Recorded at the Holzmühle, Seeshaupt deep in the countryside some forty km south west of Munich, the recording studio is located in what looks like the loft of a converted farm house. I found the sound quality impressive with the richly honeyed timbre of the chosen instruments most agreeable. The release on Solo Musica is nicely presented in a gatefold sleeve with an interesting and informative essay.

In reality the exposed nature of these rare baroque pieces for solo violin should appeal mainly to the specialist listener. However, the attraction of five world première recordings combined with such impressive playing makes this a valuable release.
