The names of the composers included here read like a “Who is Who” of the heyday of Bohemian musicians and composers from the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. They include F. Benda, J. Stamitz, J. L. Dussek and J. B. Vanhal, in their time names that were known throughout Europe, and who predominantly worked at noteworthy courts in different countries. Today their music is largely overshadowed by that of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Yet the Bohemians particularly excelled as far as the violin sonata was concerned. Our two volume edition will provide the curious (and indeed already quite advanced) violinist with a colourful bouquet of worthwhile discoveries.
