We know relatively little about Froberger. His many journeys point to a restless spirit, to boundless curiosity and a desire for personal development. At the age of 18, Johannes Maria Bogner was led to the harpsichord, where he first encountered the works of Froberger and he was captivated by them. After he changed to playing the clavichord, he came back to the composer's works. On this recording he presents them in all the intimacy and agitation that the clavichord is capable of realizing.

ďI should like to play the Memento mori Froberger as well as I can. It is very difficult to discover the music only from the notation. I have studied it with extreme studiousness even though the notation is clearly written. Whoever has not learned the pieces from the late Herr Froberger himself, cannot cinvincingly play them with true discretion, as he played them. May God Almighty grant that we music lovers may all delight ourselves in the choir of the muses in heaven with him. Amen.Ē - Letter by Sibylla von WŁrttemberg to Constantijn Huygens, 24 October 1667
