Chatham Baroque

Bach & Before (2013)

Stylus Fantasticus Sonatas of Bach, Buxtehude, Biber, Schmelzer & Bertali

“Each of the composers featured on this recording were proponents of the stylus fantasticus, a term which had its roots initially in the improvisational and virtuosic style of organ toccatas and fantasias of composers such as Frescobaldi, and which was later transmitted north through composers like Froberger.” View CD booklet
