Delve into the captivating compositions of Johann Friedrich Fasch with Accentus Music's latest CD release, Fasch: Sonatas interpreted by Austrian baroque ensemble Barucco. Fasch, renowned as a composer even before assuming the prestigious role of court Kapellmeister in Anhalt-Zerbst in 1722, left an indelible mark on the musical landscape of the Baroque era.

This meticulously curated collection offers a glimpse into Fasch's diverse repertoire, showcasing his skilful fusion of form and melody. It presents the intricate structures as well as the melodic richness of his sonatas, each piece encapsulating Fasch's innovative approach to composition.

Performed with precision and passion by Barucco, this recording offers a faithful interpretation of Johann Friedrich Fasch's compositions, allowing audiences to experience the music as it was intended.
