Fascinating music by a composer who was popular during his lifetime and is unknown today, here presented in very colorful interpretation.

Six sonatas for oboe and basso continuo combined on one CD require an exciting, varied sound experience in the accompaniment. In order to fulfill this claim I took a close look at the character of the individual works in order to work it out particularly through the instrumentation. Sonata I and III are accompanied by a chest organ, whereby the pieces themselves create great contrasts: Sonata I is a very soft, restrained work with a lot of chromaticism, Sonata III on the other hand shines with many fanfare-like figurations. Sonata IV leaves a lot of room for improvisation on a harpsichord, Sonata V is very equal in treble and bass and requires a string bass combined with the keyboard instrument. The decision was made to use a very contoured and transparent-sounding instrument: the violoncello da spalla.

The Sonata VI remembers of a very festively radiant piece for trumpet. Clearly an organ is perfect for the accompaniment. To support the percussive character of the bass line we‘ve added a baroque guitar here. Probably the most unusual line-up on this CD can be heard in Sonata II. It needs radiance in the first half and a special, sparkling color for the dance movements. Here the bass is performed by an regal, a very special color in combination with the oboe.
