Order 2-CD Set

Heinz Holliger's 1972 Archiv recordings of the Trio Sonatas of Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745) rescued the Czech-born Dresden court composer from obscurity, indeed, initiated a veritable "Zelenka renaissance". A quarter-century later, oboe virtuoso Holliger and his friends return to this vibrant and unique music, delivering an even more extraordinary realization for the New Series. "Precisely the works that never reveal their secrets make a performer's life worth living. Exploring these masterpieces will always be a lifelong undertaking", says Holliger
