Programme Note

Three well-known exponents of the British early-music scene come together to present a programme from the Austro-German baroque. They explore the fascinating possibilities of re-tuning the violin strings, the so-called scordatura, used by Biber to such extraordinary effect in his Mystery Sonatas, and by Weiss, Vilsmaÿr, Richter and others to create strange and wonderful sonorities on the instrument.
