Cratfield concertgoers who attended either of the early music concerts by the Paris-based Ensemble Diderot (in 2011 and 2014) may be interested in the new CD which Johannes Pramsohler’s own label Audax Records has just released: Bach & Entourage.
The innovative programme includes violin sonatas which may be by Bach, are treated as Bach but may be by Pisendel, are definitely by Pisendel (a daringly virtuoso solo sonata, which Johannes played for us in 2014) and by less well known composers of the generation after Bach: Johann Ludwig Krebs and Johann Gottlieb Graun (both world première recordings).
Johannes is the violinist on the CD, with Philippe Grisvard harpsichord; it can be ordered direct from the Audax Records website (click here) or from the usual retail sources in the UK.
