Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Carl Friedrich Abel was one of the few composers to be painted by a famous painter. Two portraits of the composer, done by Thomas Gainsborough, are preserved. This shows his status as one of the foremost composers of his day. This release features his Sonatas and Trios from the Ledenburg Collection. Many of these works are receiving their world premiere recording with this release. Thomas Fritzsch is one of the finest gambists of our day. Joining him on period instruments are pianist Michael Schonheit, violinist Eva Salonen, and cellist Katharina Holzhey.
