** WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING **
Pieter Hellendaal was one of the star violinists who - like Geminiani and Veracini - appeared as a soloist during the intermissions of Handel’s operas in London.
Exploring Hellendaal’s sonata manuscript in Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum, Johannes Pramsohler brings to light a composer firmly rooted in the Corellian tradition, yet reminiscent of his teacher Tartini in his melodic invention and of Locatelli in his stunningly virtuosic cadenzas.

“The clean, lyrical virtuosity from Johannes Pramsohler is of the kind that begs you to simply sit back and soak it all up.”
“Pramsohler’s assured technique and musicianship are impressive”
