Biber & Schmelzer
Elfa Rún Kristinsdóttir, Magnus Andersson and Sabine Erdmann will perform sonatas by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, legendary 17th century composers and violin virtuosi from Lower Austria and Bohemia. Schmelzer was the first German-speaking composer to release a collection of sonatas for solo violin and organ counterpoint and had strong influence on Biber. Elfa Rún will be accompanied by organist Sabine Erdmann and theorbo player Magnus Andersson. The group is about to release an album with the same works under the label Solaire Records.
