Notes & Reviews:

Anton Steck is certainly one of our great baroque virtuosos and second to none in his knowledge of the highly developed violin music of the seventeenth century. He has now teamed up with the leading gambist Hille Perl to perform seven previously unrecorded violin sonatas by Heinrich Ignaz Biber and Georg Muffat.

Fanfare
Steck's virtuosity ... sounds so breathtaking at times as to remind listeners, as no mere biography could, that Biber himself had been a formidable virtuoso and, presumably, just as highly creative in his role as performer as he must have been as a composer.
