Code: COVIELLO SACD 21008
|(on original violins by Jakob Stainer, c.1617-1704)
Heinrich Biber’s Rosary (Mystery) Sonatas—fifteen sonatas for violin and continuo portraying the fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, and an extended passacaglia for solo violin—constitute a high point in virtuosic Baroque violin music: each sonata employs scordatura, a different tuning of the violin’s strings. Violinist Daniel Sepec presents an authentic interpretation of Biber’s famed sonata cycle on original violins of the celebrated Tyrolean violin maker Jakob Stainer (c. 1617-1683), with outstanding continuo accompaniment by Hille Perl, Lee Santana and Michael Behringer.
