Album information

Ensemble Marsyas' recording of Johann Fasch's finest chamber music demonstrates why the man and his music were so appreciated in his own lifetime.

Founding member Peter Whelan and "the queen of the recorder" (BBC Radio 3) Pamela Thorby are the soloists challenged with meeting the virtuoso demands of this engaging music. The four-movement Quartet in B flat major for recorder, oboe, violin and continuo is among one of Fasch's most popular works; full of catchy tunes and contrapuntal ingenuity in equal measure, virtuosity is demanded from all concerned. The Concerto in F major for recorder and strings was only recently attributed to Fasch.  It is full of characteristic Fasch-isms and of the same dramatic quasi-recitative style as his Bassoon Concerto.

The ensemble and featured soloists are: Josep Domènech Lafont & Molly Marsh oboe, Alec Frank-Gemmill horn, Sophie Gent & Huw Daniel violin, Alfonso Leal del Ojo Chamorro viola, Sarah McMahon cello, Thomas Dunford theorbo, Philippe Grisvard harpsichord and Pamela Thorby recorder.
