Info for Corelli/ Telemann/ Leclair/ Händel/ Albicastro Sonaten für Violine und Basso continuo
After his recording debut with violin concertos from Dresden Johannes Pramsohler releases his second CD and takes on a new challenge: launching his own label, Audax Records, where he aims to give forgotten and neglected masterworks a befitting place.
With a thoroughly researched musicological programme of violin sonatas by Corelli, Telemann, Leclair, Handel and Albicastro, Pramsohler commemorates Arcangelo Corelli's death and pays homage to one of the key figures in music history. Corelli published his violin sonatas op. 5 on January 1st, 1700 which became a groundbreaking work that rapidly spread all over Europe influencing many composers, amongst them the four composers featured on this disc. Johannes Pramsohler and Philippe Grisvard (harpsichord) play with virtuosity and captivating sonority on their journey through the baroque era of Europe. Johannes Pramsohler was born in South Tyrol, studied in London and is now based in Paris. He has established himself internationally as an emminent expert of historical informed performance. Besides directing his own groups, the Ensemble Diderot and the International Baroque Players, he is regularly invited to lead and direct orchestras like Concerto Köln, Le Concert d'Astrée, The King's Consort, the Taiwan Baroque Orchestra and the European Union Baroque Orchestra. On this CD he plays his P.G. Rogeri previously owned by Reinhard Goebel.
With Audax Records Johannes Pramsohler is already planning for the future: Spring 2014 will see the label's second release, a CD by the Ensemble Diderot with world premiere recordings of chamber music from the Dresden court.
