The sixth release on the Vivat label features Henry Purcellís brilliant yet melancholic Ten Sonatas in Four Parts.
The Kingís Consort holds a worldwide reputation as leading performers of Purcell. This new release adds to TKCís 25 recordings of the composerís music, which have won numerous international awards and been central in restoring Purcellís music to prominence.
The international performer line-up includes Italian-Dutch violinist Cecilia Bernardini, Gramophone award-winning German viol player Susanne Heinrich, Welsh violinist Huw Daniel, English organist Robert King and theorbo player Lynda Sayce.
Purcellís extraordinarily inventive, highly individual music combines Italian vigour, French elegance and delicious English melancholy with harmonic daring, extraordinary contrapuntal technique and unique melodic inventiveness.
The extensive presentation includes 44 page booklet with authoritative liner notes in three languages by renowned Purcell expert and biographer Robert King, session photographs and reproductions from the 1697 first edition.
Recorded in the well-nigh perfect acoustic of the Menuhin Hall, Surrey.
