To cap our two-year celebration of Fasch, we introduce four composers who are new to us and maybe to you, too. We present Kusser’s theatrical overture, Party of the Muses, a tour-de-force violin concerto by Locatelli, and modern premieres of a sinfonia by Endler and a concerto grosso by Stölzel, all alongside Fasch’s rip-roaring Orchestral Suite in F.
Orchestral Suite in F, FWV K:F1* — Johann Friedrich Fasch
Violin Concerto in B flat, Op 3 No 7 — Pietro Antonio Locatelli
Sinfonia in G — Johann Samuel Endler (modern premiere)
Concerto Grosso in E Minor — Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel (modern premiere)
Le Festin des Muses, Suite IV — Johann Sigismund Kusser
*Part of our live-in-concert, modern-premieres recording for Chandos to be released in 2012.
