Editorial Reviews

(2-CD set) Joyful - Sorrowful - Glorious - 15 violin tunings - 16 evocative pieces. In this new Lyrichord recording, 21st century understanding of 17th century performance practice meets the formidable virtuosity of Biber's violin writing. With the most extensive use of scordatura (re-tuning) in violin repertoire, each piece is given its own sound-world. Using a facsimile of the only surviving manuscript, gut strings, short bows, theorbo and chamber organ, these highly regarded period players offer a historical and impassioned approach to these improvisatory preludes, hymn-like sonatas, and spirited dance movements honoring the Mysteries of the Rosary. Listeners are moved by the power of this music, carrying us through joy, sorrow, and glory, reflecting scenes of life, death, and rebirth.

Format: MP3 Music
I've long enjoyed Biber's violin sonatas - starting with Biber: Violin Sonatas, a classic recording on Harmonia Mundi. This work is an excellent continuation of that tradition: passionate and crisp, early music that walks the fine line between cerebral and fluffy.

Here's a snippet from the label's press release:

"In this new Lyrichord recording, 21st century understanding of 17th century performance practice meets the formidable virtuosity of Biber's violin writing. With the most extensive use of scordatura (re-tuning) in violin repertoire, each piece is given its own sound-world. Using a facsimile of the only surviving manuscript, gut strings, short bows, theorbo and chamber organ, these highly regarded period players offer a historical and impassioned approach to these improvisatory preludes, hymn-like sonatas, and spirited dance movements honoring the Mysteries of the Rosary. Listeners are moved by the power of this music, carrying us through joy, sorrow, and glory, reflecting scenes of life, death, and rebirth."
