Music: 5 star review in Fono Forum

26th June 2012

Johannes’ debut CD Pisendel – Violin concertos from Dresden, which he recorded for the German label Raumklang has had an outstanding review in the German Classical Music magazine Fono Forum. The CD includes works by Handel, Fasch, Telemann, Heinichen and Pisendel, several in their world premiere recordings. Johannes describes the process of making this recording (researching the music, building an interpretation without any baggage  and presenting it to concert audiences for the first time) as a “thrilling and extremely rewarding experience”. Not only is this his first disc as a soloist and director, but it is also the debut CD for the International Baroque Players.

So far, the CD has been featured on most of Europe’s biggest classical music radio stations and has been enthusiastically received by the international press.
