Johannes Pramsohler and his colleagues rummaged through the luggage of Bach’s contemporaries and found some concerto scores that were clearly written for travelling musicians. Scored for seven or fewer players they are brilliant and remarkable pieces. Johann Fasch is famous for turning down the Leipzig cantor post that eventually went to Bach. Pisendel was an extraordinary violinist who paid several visits to Vivaldi, who wrote many concertos for him. Paul Durant composed mostly for the lute, here played by Jadran Duncumb.
