Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Wolfgang Adam Anton Hoffer is a figure shrouded in mystery. Though little is known of his activities, his lute compositions are among the most outstanding of the 18th century. This recording features virtuoso German lutenist Michael Ducker.

Expedition Audio Recommended
You can hear more than six minutes of Hoffer's beautiful music ... on the samples provided with this recommendation. Lutenist Michael Dücker, who has appeared with La Stravaganza Köln, Musica Antiqua Köln, and Concerto Köln, plays beautifully. A warm and intimate sonic atmosphere for Dücker's expert renditions is provided by New Classical Adventures... This is not to be missed by anyone who enjoys baroque lute music. ... read more ...

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
We have here four suites, in the French style. Two are named, in the rococo fashion, La Belle Indifferente and La Querelle d'Amour. The dances, apart from the entrees or preludes, do really dance. I found these trifles quite delightful. Michael Ducker is an active continuo player with what seems like a Who's Who among German early music groups: Music Antiqua Koln, Concerto Koln, Al Stravaganza Koln, Academie fur Alte Musik Berlin, you name it. He has been on over 100 CDs. He's a worthy player, with a bright and clear tone, a solid technical command, and a fine understanding of the style. It's undeniably pretty fluff, and sometimes that's just what one needs.
