Label: ATMA Classique
Catalog: ACD2 2744
Mcnabney, Mélisande; Pallade Musica
Baroque ensemble Pallade Musica offers a glimpse into the world of Otto Ernst Gregorius Schieferlein, a German Baroque composer. Precious little is known of Schieferlein. He was born in 1704, in Buxtehude, a city near Hamburg, where he died on in 1787. Among the few works that have been attributed to Schieferlein are a wedding cantata, and the three trio sonatas that are recorded here for the first time. They have survived in an 18th-century manuscript copy from the library of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. Pallade Musica’s second ATMA recording also includes works by G. P. Telemann and C. P. E. Bach.
