Innovative instrumentation, unusual repertoire and an ensemble with a profound knowledge of historical performance practice makes this Irish Baroque Orchestra Linn debut unmissable.
The soloists, including Lisa Beznosiuk (OAE), Andreas Helm (Concentus Musicus Wien), Monica Huggett (Sonnerie) and Peter Whelan (Ensemble Marsyas) relish the opportunity to show off their skills.
Alongside the double cello concerto by Vivaldi and Telemann's concerto for two violins and bassoon sit the lesser known, but equally brilliant, concertos by Graupner, Heinichen and Fasch. One of the most beautiful combinations is the Graupner Triple Concerto for oboe d'amore, viola d'amore and flute d'amore, which produces an exquisite blend of other-worldly colours. Wonderfully kaleidoscopic colours also pervade the concertos by Heinichen and Fasch, the latter proving just why Telemann and Bach held him in such high esteem.
This album was nominated for 'Best Classical Album' at the 2016 The Irish Times Ticket Awards and received multiple five star reviews.
