Enlightened Virtuoso is an attempt to show the artist-performer fighting for independence in the second half of the 18th century by breaking up the stereotype of a musician as servant and, in this case, as instead a violin virtuoso. The recording was made by Zbigniew Pilch on a historical instrument with gut strings. The bow used is a copy of a bow from the turn of the 18th century. The interpretation of pieces is largely based on historical records concerning performance principles, including the use of articulation and fingering, adequate for performance practice in the second half of the 18th century.
