Description: Vilsmayr’s pieces represent half of a publication, Artificiosus conceptus pro camera, which, if the title reminds you of Biber, may be because Vilsmayr was part of the master’s chapel in Salzburg. Biber’s influence is palpable in several ways including scordatura tuning and their general complexity and level of accomplishment. Liliana Bernardi (violin).
