Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Johann Stamitz's six Violin Sonatas op. 6 were first published following his death. Stamitz was famous for his absolutely incredible finger dexterity, a reputation that this father of the German violin school continues to enjoy even today. It was said at the time that only Stamitz himself could play this music.

Michael Behringer's highly imaginative continuo playing makes a significant contribution. He improvisationally negotiates the numerous violinistic curves, comments on them, and varies them without forcing his way into the foreground! This is late baroque duo playing at its absolute best.

Things are especially fine on MDG's 2+2+2 production: in the three-dimensional sound of this carefully produced Super Audio CD you can almost reach out and touch the performance.
