About

‘The son of an Osnabrück town musician has in fact created a concerto that easily holds its own with the renowned repertoire works of a Louis Spohr or a Carl Maria von Weber.’ In 2011, audiophil wrote this on the occasion of the first release by the Osnabrück composer Christian Westerhoff. Now a second CD is presenting tonally sophisticated concertos by this Mozart contemporary. The fact that Westerhoff wrote viola concertos of great virtuosity represents a unique feat for his times. He himself must have enjoyed a sovereign command of this instrument. Barbara Buntrock has recorded two charming, virtuosic, and entertaining concertos for us! Along with the Flute Concerto, they contribute to the rediscovery of a composer from Mozart’s times who demonstrates that great talents were active even in Germany’s provincial northwest.
