Description: The contents of a Swedish manuscript compiled from four sonatas by Pietro Castrucci and two by the now largely forgotten Francesco Geminiani, probably drawing on an edition printed almost fifty years earlier in Amsterdam and London, which had adapted the sonatas originally conceived for violin for the recorder. These are interleaved with short miniatures on well-known English melodies from a collection published in Sweden around 1770 by an unknown composer named Frederick Nussen. Tabea Schwartz (recorder), Thomas Leininger (harpsichord).
