About

Gottfried von der Goltz and musicians from the Freiburger Barockorchester perform the scores of composer, violinist, teacher and art dealer Francesco Geminiani in a debut for the Aparté label.

Geminiani’s Art of Playing on the Violin and his Sonatas with continuo are typical of the baroque style and they reflect his own practice of the instrument. With Geminiani, virtuosity is not an end in itself but it serves as pure musical drama where lyrical flights respond to more subtle ideas.

Gottfried von der Goltz has established himself internationally as a Baroque violinist and as one of the Artistic Directors of the Freiburger Barockorchester (FBO). As was common in the 18th century, he leads the FBO from the position of concertmaster. His repertoire ranges from early Baroque to contemporary music, illustrated by a broad discography, which shows him as a tremendously versatile and flexible musician: as soloist and as orchestra director. Most notably, Gottfried von der Goltz is renowned as a specialist in the music of the Dresden Baroque and of the four Bach sons.

“The playing of the Freiberg Baroque Orchestra under von der Goltz is superb; it truly sparkles yet is considered and free of all affectation.” - MusicWeb International
