About

Almost ten years after Reinhard Goebel's Musica Antiqua Köln disbanded, the Ensemble Diderot completes the last CD project of this legendary early music group.

Johann Friedrich Meister's Pleasure Garden represents a spectacular repertoire discovery: trio sonatas of a rare seriousness and depth which cleverly menoeuvre between Lully, Corelli, Buxtehude, Rosenmüller and Reincken.

"All attentive listeners with a sense of music history will prick up their ears at this recording, for Johann Friedrich Meister is a real genius." - Reinhard Goebel

Johannes Pramsohler was born in South Tyrol, studied in London and is now based in Paris. He has established himself internationally as an emminent expert of historical informed performance. He is regularly invited to lead Europe's most important baroque orchestras.

The Ensemble Diderot is undoubtedly one of today's most interesting and original chamber music groups in Europe. It dedicates itself to the exploration and performance of the Baroque trio sonata repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and performs on original instruments. Future projects will see the group perform works from Monteverdi to Hasse as an orchestra.

Reviews

Enriched by Philippe Grisvard’s fluid harpsichord realisations, ravishingly recorded, this is classy, fulsome, engagingly urbane playing. And as befits an ensemble named after the French ‘philosophe’, pre-eminently thoughtful too.  Paul Riley (Chamber Choice)
