about this recording:
The retuning of the strings leads to astonishing changes of timbre and, in combination with the organ positive (Temperatur: Kirnberger III), gives the violin a weird charm. So every piece sounds characteristically different, though only one instrument was used for all recorded works to make the difference clearly audible for the listener.

"The compositions are performed with a feeling for detail and sensitivity for the tonal refinements. The phrases are calmly played out, have a beginning and an end, and the sound of each phrase is able to unfold and develop completely . . . Egino Klepper provides the soloist with an excellent continuo foundation. The organ is present throughout, always with a supple 'swing'." (alte musik aktuell 4 ‘95)
