A baroque recital with highlights from the Baroque in Denmark, Germany and Italy.

Chrysillis is a very great baroque love poem by Thomas Hansen Kingo (1643-1703). Kingo addressed this poem to his first wife. She was the widow of the his predecessor. Her name was Sille Balkenborg. The poem has 16 verses in the original form. This version contains four of the original sixteen verses.
Another great Danish baroque poet was H. A. Brorson (1694-1764). He was an active performer on the baroque guitar. In this case the very intimate qualities of baroque guitar manages to highlight a special poetic and musical quality to be found in Brorsons poetry.
The sonata for baroque guitar and bass voice by Schickhardt is taken from a music collection of 12 sonatas, written down by guitarmester Johan Friederich Fibiger (1680-1738). The sonata is probably written for baroque guitar by Schickhardt himself. Schickhardt might have been an employee at the court of his Royal Highness Frederick IV (1671-1730) in Copenhagen.
Vivaldi’s sonata for cello RV 40 on this CD is a very rare and intimate version for cello and baroque guitar.

This CD was recorded and produced with very few takes and cuts in order to pass on an authentic concert experience to the listener.
