Biber: The Mystery Sonatas
Heinrich Biber s astonishingly powerful and deeply emotional Mystery Sonatas represent a triumph of Baroque invention. Boston Baroque s Christina Day Martinson delivers a technical tour de force, as she navigates the virtuosic challenges presented by the fiendishly demanding changing scordatura. Boston Classical Review described her live performance as a flourish of technical complexity and musical wizardry , whilst the Boston Globe wrote, Day Martinson...didn't just survive, she triumphed. The adventurous use of six baroque violins in fifteen different tunings creates otherworldly soundscapes that result in a deeply moving and glorious listening experience. This highly disorientating practice reaches its pinnacle in Sonata XI ('The Resurrection') where the middle two strings are crossed over each other both in the peg box and behind the bridge, so that one can literally see a cross on the violin. The fifteen sonatas have been traditionally grouped into three sets of five: five joyful mysteries, five sorrowful mysteries, and five glorious mysteries. Boston Baroque s founder Martin Pearlman plays organ and harpsichord, with Michael Leopold on theorbo and guitar and Michael Unterman on cello.

Lang: Mystery Sonatas
Back in April 2014 at Carnegie's Zankel Hall, Augustin Hadelich's performance of David Lang's 'mystery sonatas' was praised by the New York Times as a riveting display of magisterial poise and serene control. That same magic penetrates this starkly beautiful recording of the work, played by Hadelich on the exquisite 1723 ex-Kiesewetter Stradivari, on loan to him by its current owners since 2011. Lang based his 'mystery sonatas' on the famous pieces by Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, but with a modern twist. I decided to make my own virtuosic pieces about my most intimate, most spiritual thoughts, he explains, [but] mine are not about Jesus, and the violin is not retuned between movements. I did keep one of Biber's distinctions. He divides Jesus's life into three phasesthe joyous, the sorrowful, and the glorious. The central pieces of my mystery sonatas are called 'joy,' 'sorrow,' and 'glory,' but these are all quiet, internal, reflective states of being.

Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber's Rosary Sonatas (or Mystery Sonatas) c. 1678 are unlike anything else in the violin literature, with scordatura, or unconventional instrument tuning, exhaustively explored in the fifteen-piece cycle, each sonata utilizing a different tuning. Each sonata represents one of the Catholic Rosary Mysteries. As the music reaches its spiritual climax in the 'Resurrection' sonata, Biber specifies the violin be played with its two central strings crossed. Accompanying Lina Tur Bonet, an exciting younger generation violinist, is her ensemble Musica Alchemica.

Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber (1644-1704): The Sacred Mysteries - The Rosary Sonatas For Violin &
(2-CD set) Joyful - Sorrowful - Glorious - 15 violin tunings - 16 evocative pieces. In this new Lyrichord recording, 21st century understanding of 17th century performance practice meets the formidable virtuosity of Biber's violin writing. With the most extensive use of scordatura (re-tuning) in violin repertoire, each piece is given its own sound-world. Using a facsimile of the only surviving manuscript, gut strings, short bows, theorbo and chamber organ, these highly regarded period players offer a historical and impassioned approach to these improvisatory preludes, hymn-like sonatas, and spirited dance movements honoring the Mysteries of the Rosary. Listeners are moved by the power of this music, carrying us through joy, sorrow, and glory, reflecting scenes of life, death, and rebirth.

Vivaldi: The Four Seasons / Geminiani: Concerto Grosso Nos. 4 &
The Four Seasons, one of the most famous pieces of classical music, circulated widely in Vivaldi's time. Years later, though, it fell out of the repertoire for over a century before being "rediscovered" in the first part of the 20th century. First published in Amsterdam in 1725, The Four Seasons are the first four of a set of twelve concertos with the overall title Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione (The contest between harmony and invention), Op. 8.The original publication that included The Four Seasons provided a sonnet (possibly by Vivaldi himself) giving a detailed program for each of the four concertos, and indicating pictorial effects in greater detail than any other work of Vivaldi. These include bird calls; angry tremolos designated as "thunder;" gentle dotted rhythms marked "the murmuring of the fronds and plants"; the viola as "barking dog;" a pastoral dance with the sound of bagpipes; the voice of the cuckoo and the turtle dove; a furious summer storm; a depiction of "drunks;" an imitation of horn calls in "the hunt;" the shiver of Winter, with its blasts of wind and chattering of teeth, sliding on the ice, falling as it cracks, and the joy of resting peacefully by the fireside. Too many to name here, they are all spelled out in the sonnets and notes that accomp...

The Unfinished Sonata (Annie's Attic
While cleaning in the library of Grey Gables, Annie Dawson comes across a music box, left to her as the crowning piece of a collection her grandmother had assembled. Beautifully carved, it is the only box in the collection that won't play. Where did her grandmother get the box, and why had it never been repaired? These questions will haunt Annie and will lead her down one of the most painful -- and yet one of the most romantic -- journeys she has taken during the time she has spent sorting out the mysteries hidden within the walls of Grey Gables.
