Biber: Ensemble Cordaria - The Mystery Sonatas / Rosenkranz-Sonaten Sonatas. Composer s :. Catalogue Number:. Violinists are understandably drawn towards the 15 sonatas in which Biber evoked and depicted scenes from Sleep, Come On And Take Me - The Boswell Sisters - The Object Of My Affection life of Christ.
They are beautifully crafted pieces full of fantasy, contemplative and, in their unparalleled exploration of scordatura retuning of one or more stringscolourful and technically challenging. In addition to the sonatas, all of which require continuo, Biber included an unaccompanied Passacaglia, an intense and profoundly meditative coda to the 15 central events in Christian history.
This piece and the Sonata which begins the set are alone in not requiring scordatura. Each of them has its virtues, that of Melkus, dating back toblazing the trail for following generations of violinists.
He makes us think of the contrasting events in the life of Christ which inspired Biber. Susanne Lautenbacher, Ensemble Cordaria - The Mystery Sonatas / Rosenkranz-Sonaten an elderly recording on Vox, captures its nobility but makes little or no dynamic variation.
Reiter is thoughtful, reflective and poetic, yet technically he just fails to match either Holloway or Melkus. But his responses to this music are nonetheless appealing and his performances are stylish, idiomatic and vivid. Readers are unlikely to be disappointed. Nicholas Anderson. Share this article Share.
