about

This recording features the world premiere of unpublished works by Johann Georg Pisendel, concertmaster of the Dresden orchestra and one of the greatest virtuosi of the 18th century, although he is relatively unknown today.
The discovery came about when researching his personal music collection. This collection is, due to its type and size, one of the most important and unique in Europe, and its existence is almost miraculous, having survived several bombings throughout history. In 1896, after more than a hundred years of oblivion, it was discovered and transferred to the slub (Die Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek, Saxon State and University Library Dresden) where it is preserved today.
This immense collection contains, next to works by great composers such as Vivaldi, Handel and Telemann, a treasure trove of anonymous works, of which only some, thanks to thorough research, have been identified in recent years. Javier Lupiáñez, musicologist and director of Scaramuccia, has identified several of these manuscripts. This year he managed to identify a group of violin sonatas – which until now were anonymous – as genuine Pisendel works. These findings are of great importance since the quality and beauty of the pieces is compounded by the fact that currently the catalog of Pisendel’s works is quite small and has not been updated since the 1950s. Without a doubt, the beauty and virtuosity of these pieces are enough to justify this recording, which also rediscovers one of the greatest virtuosos of the 18th century.
