Peranda: Sacred Music From Dresden
FEUERSINGER KIEHR POTTER HOHN PILGRAM FLAIG ABENDMUSIKEN BASEL BOTTICHER
In 1656 not everyone was enthusiastic about the reorganization of the Saxon court chapel by Elector Johann Georg II. From then on, Italian composers established a new, modern tone. The Basler Abendmusiken make audible what aroused the emotions in Dresden at that time. Abendmusiken Basel is a vocal and instrumental ensemble based in Basel, Switzerland, and organized to interpret works of the 17th century in historically informed performances. Directed by harpsichordist Jörg-Andreas Bötticher, the group is formed of specialists in early music, and it has given concerts at the Predigerkirche in Basel. Its first recording on Coviello, In Convertendo: Sacred Music from the Düben Collection, was released in 2018.
