Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Daniel S. Lee and harpsichordist Jeffrey Grossman are the artistic directors of the Sebastians, a dynamic and vital musical ensemble specializing in music of the baroque and classical eras. Lauded as "everywhere sharp-edged and engaging" (The New York Times), the Sebastians have also been praised for their "well-thought-out articulation and phrasing" (Early Music Review). Lee is known for his "ravishing vehemence" and "soulful performance" (The New York Times) and Grossman as a "sensitive and fluent accompanist" of "flair and conviction" (Fanfare). In this intimate duo release, they explore the rich baroque repertoire of music for violin and harpsichord written by composers from modern-day Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. This collection of virtuoso works by Biber, Froberger, Baltzar, Telemann, Handel, J.S. and C.P.E. Bach represents some of the finest chamber music writing from the flourishing arts in the provinces of the Holy Roman Empire. The recording takes its name from the Italian "a 2," used by these German speakers as well, which indicates two musicians playing together.
