Product description

Product Description

  • Biber's Mystery Sonatas are a set of 16 virtuosic violin sonatas which serve as a unique masterpiece of the Baroque repertoire. Each sonata features one of the fifteen rosary mysteries that surround the life of Jesus and the Virgin Mary.
  • Biber uses many extended techniques for the instrument, most prominently the requirement of various re-tunings of the instrument in order to pull of special effects and techniques.
  • Kaakinen-Pilch is a great leader and exponent of early music and pulls of these difficult pieces with style and aplomb.


A unique set of pieces that is full of symbolism, musical extremeism and the meditation on a mystery as complex as the 15 mysteries of the Rosary. GRAMOPHONE EDITORS CHOICE --Gramphone, Sept'14
