Geminiani: The Art of Playing the Violin
Geminiani: Violin Sonata in D major, Op 4 No 6 (13:27)
Gottfried von der Goltz, violin; Annekatrin Beller, cello; Torsten Johann, harpsichord; Thomas Boysen, theorbo
Violinist Gottfried von der Goltz and musicians from the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra bring to life the scores of the composer, violinist, teacher and art dealer Francesco Geminiani. His “Art of Playing the Violin” and his Sonatas reflect his own practice of the instrument. With Geminiani, virtuosity is not an end in itself but it serves a pure musical drama.
