Notes & Reviews:
In the eighteenth century, August the Strong established a musical center at the court of Dresden that attracted musicians from throughout the world, and which boasted an orchestra that was as technically accomplished as it was musically outstanding: the Dresden Court Chapel. It was in this environment that concertmaster and violin virtuoso Johann Georg Pisendel composed his virtuoso Violin Concert, as did also his famous contemporaries Handel, Telemann, Fasch, and Heinichen. Having survived the turmoil of a number of wars, these concertos, preserved in Dresden's famous "Schrank II", have received refreshingly vivid and multifaceted first recordings by Johannes Pramsohler and the International Baroque Players, and show themselves to be impressive treasures of the Baroque era in Dresden!
