We’ve put together a playlist of (most) of the music you’ll hear at Intimate German Baroque (Jan 19 – 22, 2017), featuring English baritone Peter Harvey and Jeanne Lamon, violin. It’s a great way to get into the spirit of the concert before you hear it live on stage. Since we are not including a recording of Böddecker’s Sonata sopra La Monica, you’ll have to come to the concert to hear it. Enjoy!
The first piece on the program and on the playlist is H.I. F. von Biber‘s Fidicinium sacro-profanum no. 1 in B Minor (Nuremberg, c.1683). We included L’Armonia Sonora’s recording.
The next track on the playlist is Dietrich Buxtehude‘s Cantata “Mein Herz ist bereit” (Lübeck, c.1680), featuring our guest artist, Peter Harvey, and the Purcell Quartet.
Then we visit J.S. Bach’s mentor and cousin Johann Christoph Bach and his Lamento “Wie bist du denn, O Gott?” (Eisenach, late 17th century). The version we selected for the playlist is by The English Baroque Soloists with conductor John Elliot Gardiner.
We revisit Biber and his Sonata no. 3 in F Major for violin & continuo (Nuremberg, 1681). This version is performed by Romanesca (Andrew Manze, baroque violin; Nigel North, lute and theorbo; Johnn Toll, organ).
The final piece on the playlist is Johann Sebastian Bach‘s Cantata 82 “Ich habe genug” (Leipzig, 1727) with baritone Peter Harvey, and John Eliot Gardiner and The English Baroque Soloists.
