Notes & Reviews:

"Gradus ad Parnasum", the ascent to the seat of the gods, is in the figurative sense certainly the right title for the portrait of such a unique instrument; for indeed, alongside the other daughters of Zeus, the father of the gods, the Muses also live on Parnassus. In our program, this "gradus" is musically symbolized by the two "cornerstones", the introductory and concluding works by Froberger and Muffat. In terms of quality, precisely these two musical creations can be conceded a top position in the music of the late seventeenth century. The attentive listener will experience here a self-contained, extremely colorful tonal cosmos from an exciting epoch of musical history.
