With this recording, violinist Mayumi Hirasaki, who has been Concerto Köln’s concertmaster since 2011, explores the chameleon-like possibilities of her instrument: when playing with scordatura, instead of the usual fifths interval between the violin strings, an alternative is used in which at least one string is tuned to a different pitch. This results in completely new sonic and harmonic possibilities, which Mayumi Hirasaki presents in works by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Biagio Marini and Giuseppe Tartini, among others – sometimes highly virtuosic, sometimes dance-like or cantabile. The colourful continuo group includes Lorenzo Ghielmi (harpsichord), Christoph Urbanetz (viola da gamba), Michael Freimuth (lute, theorbo, baroque guitar) and Johannes Loescher (violone).

This album from Passacaille with the exceptional baroque violinist Mayumi Hirasaki presents masterpieces of the virtuoso violin literature with ‘scordatura’, which had its heyday between about 1600 and 1730. In addition to well-known names such as Biber and Tartini, the varied and cleverly arranged programme also features charming rarities by Johann Joseph Vilsmayr and Pietro Castrucci.
