I came across a composer I had not heard of recently and wanted to share. His name is HIF Biber and he was an early composer for the violin during the mid-late 17th C. I'm really enjoying his work and surprised I had not across him before. Here is a nice recording t=2564s

 

Enjoy

Check out Jan Dismas Zelenka.

All I know about is his six trio sonatas. Heinz Holliger and Maurice Bourgue recorded them in the Seventies. Five are played by two oboes, but one is played on oboe and violin.

The discs won a lot of prizes. They re-recorded them 10 years ago and I'm told it is better than the original recording, but this time two of the pieces are played on oboe and violin.

I always wanted to be a juvenile delinquent but my parents wouldn't let me.

Biber is on of my favorite composers. He also composed sonatas for just one solo violin. Witz b. c. and in the first example without:

I am using some of Biber's chaconnes for improvisation.

My violin is a 3/4 violin, made for right-handed players, though I play it left-handed. As I felt she was the best in the shop of all 3/4 violins I tried and the luthier agreed. I prefer Obligato strings together with Eudoxa E string.

Yes, I agree. Enjoyable music. Thanks for sharing.

So, maybe I should post more videos. There are so many people who play the violin and listen to Brandenburg Concertos and Concerti Grossi, but nobody told them, there's so much great soloistic stuff in baroque music.

I switched from jazz to baroque in 1999 and started on alto recorder. From jazz  I knew too well, that I urgently needed to listen to CDs with solo instruments to find my personal style. But I knew just Händel and Bach and not their sonatas for just one solo instrument. Neither I had a clue how many more composers there were in the 1600s and 1700s. Either someone gives you a hint now and then, or it takes you years until you find full richness. I fully comprehended that I have to focus on solo sonatas in 2011. So it took me 12 years.

My violin is a 3/4 violin, made for right-handed players, though I play it left-handed. As I felt she was the best in the shop of all 3/4 violins I tried and the luthier agreed. I prefer Obligato strings together with Eudoxa E string.
