1. played by Ernst Stolz on harpsichord
    Paintings by: BECCAFUMI, Domenico
    Italian painter, Sienese school (b. ca. 1486, Castel Monaperto, d. 1551, Siena)

    I was asked to record the firs toccata. I presume the first of book one is meant, but at the time, I know this one better. To conclude with Frescobaldi's words: May the friendly reader (listener) who is anxious to learn, accept with goodwill these notes which I make with the best of intentions...

  2. Largo, part three from this sonata in G-Major
    (edition Süddeutscher Musikverlag, Heidelberg, Hugo Ruf)
    played by ernst stolz
    Paintings in Dresden (1746 - 1766) by Bernardo Bellotto
    A wonderful sonata I think, I already recorded other parts of this work.

    At the end I made a cadence in the main key instead of the dominant.

  3. I was very productive this weekend (I am sorry).
    This recercada I did not record before but I will play it on one of my next concerts (with the theme "ground")

    In this video we get a look into the Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
    The Scuola Grande di San Rocco was founded in the late fifteenth century. It is one - and certainly the best preserved - of Venice's six Scuole Grandi (Major Guilds).

    The grandiose building was begin in 1517 and the finishing touches lasted until 1560. Four years later Jacopo Tintoretto began his pictorial decorations of the rooms.

  4. Those recordings are meant for my pupils to play with and listen to, but they are also a way for me to play those consorts myself.
    Unfortunately I miss the right people to play them with in reality, so I keep doing it like this.
    (I hope the listener doesn't mind)

    The consorts were popular in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries
    They played an important role at court and in households of the wealthy in the Elizabethan era.

    John Dowland wrote many pavans and galliards for consort, but these pieces also can be played on the lute or viginal.
