At the end of the seventeenth century, Nikolaus Bruhns played the violin, accompanying himself on the organ pedalboard. Germanic music—German or Austrian—for violin from the Baroque period is of an exceptional richness. This is due to the violinists of this vast area being multi-instrumentalists, organists, harpsichordists, kapellmeister, composers: above all, they were great musicians. From Biber to Bach, they explored their instruments in a fundamental and definitive way. For the first time on record, here we find the practice of Nikolaus Bruhns resuscitated. The music appears, in its purity, the more transparent, the more intense.
