L'art de la Musique et de la Danse Baroque
Quatre Suittes 1689 à Hannover Worldpremiere
Wonderful French Suites composed for the Hannover court by Etienne Valoix a pupil of Lully. Recorded with a chamber orchestra and colourfully orchestrated.

A fabulous release:
Arias for tenor and orchestra. Recorded in the wonderful acoustics of the hugh church in Bunde, placed in a quiet surrounding. Fotunately we were able to organise an ensemble of international top class players, who make a dreamlike sound together with the fantastic voice of Andreas Post. On this CD we have captured the most beautiful and comforting arias for tenor in the baroque period in a brilliant sound ambience.

Hajo Wienroth traversflute
Huw Daniel violin
Winfried Dahlke original harpsichord by Chr. Zell 1741

This CD was recorded at the Organeum, where the original Harpsichord that once belonged to the Ostfriesian Court is kept. It is one of the three harpsichords built by the famous Christian Zell, very probably the one best sounding of the three. The effort of very much research work on the Ostfriesian Princes, the music at the court and the harpsichord had a direct influence on the whole project and unreveals many secrets about the history and the harpsichord itself, beeing written in a well documented CD - booklet.

Since the year 1965 this is the first recording and the first CD recording at all of this instrument, documenting a very important part of the Ostfriesian history and a striking novelty to the music history in general..

Franz Sonaten Suiten

Joseph Haydn Divertissements & Trios 15,-€

A very lively and high - fildelity recording.

Hajo Wienroth (Leer) -  original keyed flute ca. 1810
Simon Standage (London) - violin
Poppy Walshaw (London) - cello

The title "Divertissements" can be seen as programmatic, implying 'easy listening'
but of that era and in the best sense of the term. The music
charmingly ranges from pleasing singing Allegros, light-footed
Minuets and swirlingly mercurial Prestos, to Adagios in Empfindsamer
Stil (a term to describe a common style in music of the mid-eighteenth
century, that expresses sentimental and deeply-felt emotions)
Haydn is thus shown with his full sense of humour, spirit and nuance,within the language of Classicism.


Johann Adolf Scheibe   15€

this is the new recording of all 3 Scheibe Sonatas this beautiful music is played by Winfried Dahlke on a wonderful harpsichord, built by Klaus Ahrend and Hajo Wienroth on his Traverso. With the Scheibe comes a beautiful Clementi Sonata performed on a chamber organ from 1804 and  an original flute from 1810.

Antoine Mahaut 9 Sonatas    15€

is the first recording of a collection of handwritten sonatas, kept in Stockholm. The bassline of the handwritten sonata is not figured, it was completed for the recording. As continuo instrument a baroque harp is used, which gives a beutiful sound combination together with the traversflute.
