Description
One of the most accomplished gambists of his time, Moravian baroque composer Gottfried Finger (c.1655–1730) was born in Olmütz (now Olomouc) and served as a youth in the elite court orchestra of the Prince-Bishop of Liechtenstein. Echo du Danube perform 12 of his chamber sonatas for string ensemble.

"Finger's music combines Austrian Gemütlichkeit and English sophistication with a touch of German intellectualism. I find Finger's sonatas both relaxing and exhilarating, a contradiction, perhaps, but it certainly reflects both the kaleidoscopic nature of music during the period and Finger's cosmopolitan life…. I have nothing but the highest admiration for the performances…. Depending on the scoring, there are as many as three violinists and one violist in the mix; the upper strings are expressive, supple, and suave. Director Christian Zincke also functions as the bass viola da gamba player, and together with keyboardist Lutz Gillmann they provide a solid underpinning for the group. Gillmann alternates between harpsichord and chamber organ; I find the sonority of the latter especially appropriate in the context of the string ensemble."—Fanfare
