Much admired for his extraordinary Mystery Sonatas, Heinrich Biber remains one of the most colourful of all Baroque composers. This pioneering compilation provides ample evidence of his range, versatility and fertile imagination in the F minor Requiem, the multi-trumpet Sonata St Polycarpi and the witty Sonata Violino Solo representativa.
