  • Description

    "The clean, lyrical virtuosity from Johannes Pramsohler is of the kind that begs you to simply sit back and soak it all up." - Gramophone

    "Pramsohler's assured technique and musicianship are impressive". - The Strad.

    For over ten years Ensemble Diderot has been known for captivating interpretations of largely unknown repertoire. For five years the creative group around Johannes Pramsohler has had its own label, Audax Records, and consequently an artistic platform for the development of projects that are not subservient to commercial criteria.

    The two violinists of Ensemble Diderot present here a striking programme of works for two violins without bass, some of which are premiere recordings.

    Get a fascinating insight into the champions league of violinists in mid 18th century France and discover works of rare beauty outside of the two famous Leclair collections: Italian virtuosity combined with French elegance!
