This fascinating collection of 17th century instrumental music, known as the Partiturbuch, was assembled by Jacob Ludwig as a birthday present for his patron, Duke August of Gotha. Featuring composers from many parts of Germany, including the imperial Viennese court in the south, the Hanseatic cities of the north, and the small ducal courts throughout Middle Germany, it brings to light a wealth of hidden treasures in a delightful variety of baroque music forms.


Beautiful and interesting music
Review By AA160104,August 2014

I found the music in this album of first quality, and it's very interesting historically. The European 17th century was an era of wars and famines. Germany was the battlefield of the Thirty Years' War and also it was divided in more than 1,000 states of different sizes. The music for its part, was transforming quickly up to going so far as to turn practically in the tonal music that today we know. In this atmosphere of big changes, we find Capricornus’ touching Ciaconna and the very fine Drese’s Sonata in A minor. Excellent CD.
