Der Habile Violiste


Each new album by Antoinette Lohmann and her ensemble Furor Musicus charts unknown territories, and this one, with repertoire by the German composer Johann Fischer (1646-1716/17) is no exception. This exciting album is packed with world premiere recordings and has been packaged as a hand numbered limited edition of 1000 copies, with the booklet containing a detailed essay about the works.

Intrigued by the 17th century distinction between educated violinists and self-taught fiddlers, Antoinette has once again found a composer who provides music in both styles. For the occasion even an alternative ensemble, Furor Agraricus, was formed, employing such rustic instruments as Bumbass and clogfiddle. The album title Der habile Violiste (the skilled violinist) refers to the subtitle of one of Fischer's most witty compositions, in which he forces the soloist to change between three different instruments (violino piccolo, violin and viola), all in different tunings (scordatura) so quickly that the player is bound for trouble.

Antoinette's previous albums for Globe Records, Phantasia Musica (GLO 5265) and Pieter Hellendaal (GLO 5271) have earned international critical acclaim.
