A magisterial account of Biber's Sonatas for Violin and Continuo, some of the most remarkable and forward-looking music created in the late 17th century, played by John Holloway, with Aloysia Assenbaum and Lars Ulrik Mortensen. "The continuo team provide a lavish backdrop to Holloway's fantastic realisations of Biber's music, with all its twisting and turning passagework, the increasingly intricate variations, the complex double-stopping in scordatura; it's all there, and it's all brilliant in the true sense of the word. No one interested in the repertoire should miss this!" - Early Music Review
