about this recording:
The sonatas for violin and continuo instruments from 1681 were, in their time, something like a standard repertory which was widely known among experts and friends of the violin. Marianna Rônez interprets these sonatas with a special bow technique from Biber's time; the hair of the bow is touched from below with the thumb. This calculated thumb pressure changes the tension of the hair and thereby creates special accents and sound variations.

“Marianne Rônez captures the often rapidly changing character of the music with a very clear yet enchanting intonation; she fascinates with her breathtaking bow technique as well as with her ability to keep diverging musical powers in an airy balance." (Fonoforum 1/95)
