Pro Arte ORCHESTRA, MUNICH, Kurt REDEL

An eclectic collection indeed – but all jolly good stuff, much of it unknown save to the experienced baroque connoisseur. Who, for example, has heard of a Swiss baroque composer by the name of Heinrich Weissenburg von Biswang? No? Perhaps the Italianized version of his name – Enrico Albicastro – might ring a bell. No? Well, here's a chance to meet him, along with Robert Woodcock from England, and Jan Dismas Zelenka from Bohemia and later Dresden.

Even with more familiar names such as Boyce, Telemann and Bach, we offer rarely heard works, or in the case of Bach, the fairly well-known Fantasy & Fugue BWV 904 but orchestrated, rather than the more customary performance on the harpsichord (though we have also issued versions for claviorganum and pedal-harpsichord).

It's a nicely varied program of very worthwhile music which we know you will enjoy.
