CLASSIC: Brahms, Tartini, Beethoven, Bach, Werkmeister, Vincentinuo
A very small, essentially handmade, edition of 300 copies of pieces researched and performed for the microtonal society at various venues in New York. This is a selection of pieces restoring original tunings and intonation, including the very interesting Musical Offering by Bach for two violins and bassoon (with no continuo), a very good version of the Devil's Trill (Valotti tuning), one of Andreas Werckmeister (well-temperament's champion and theorist)'s few surviving compositions. The Beethoven is in Kirnberger II tuning, Brahms' Horn trio is played as written on a natural, not a valve, horn, the piano in Valloti tuning. A very persuasive piece.
