5.0 out of 5 stars Biber's Magical Mystery Tour of the Rosary, 25 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Biber: The Mystery Sonatas /Holloway ∑ Moroney ∑ Tragicomedia (Audio CD)
The reviews on here have caught the mood and individuality of these exceptional sonatas perfectly.

The recording is second to none: the playing - on exquisitely handled period instruments - is only a small footstep away from that of the angels, and all things considered, the Bohemian composer Jindrich Ignaz Biber has been served well by Mr Holloway and his fellows.

Great music is for all time, and this is great music indeed: often startling in its originality, and as relevant today as it must have been when it was written.

There are now many performances of the Mystery - or Rosary, or Rosenkranz Sonatas (call them what you will) but this one must surely rank among the very best. It is certainly the most moving.

Can one say more to recommend it ?

To anyone unfamiliar with Biber's considerable output, revel in these sonatas as an introduction, and then start exploring the catalogue. You won't regret it.
