Notes & Reviews:

The fifteen Mystery (Rosary) Sonatas by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber form a fascinating cyclical work. The use of fourteen different violin tunings (scordaturas), deviating from the instrument's normal tuning in fifths, makes the sonata cycle unique in the history of the violin. Annegret Siedel, artistic director of the Bell'arte Salzburg ensemble, has recorded the Mystery Sonatas on nine different violins of the 17th and 18th centuries. She succeeds wonderfully in bringing out the sacred character of the music, particularly in its meditative passages, without falling short of the music's high technical demands.
