Biber, Heinrich Ignaz Franz

Mystery (Rosary) Sonatas and Passacaglia


Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch (violin)


Biberís Mystery Sonatas are a set of 16 virtuosic violin sonatas which serve as a unique masterpiece of the Baroque repertoire. Each sonata features one of the fifteen rosary mysteries that surround the life of Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

Biber uses many extended techniques for the instrument, most prominently the requirement of various re-tunings of the instrument in order to pull of special effects and techniques.

Kaakinen-Pilch is a great leader and exponent of early music and pulls of these difficult pieces with style and aplomb.
