Notes and Editorial Reviews

A true Platti Renaissance was initiated with the first two CDs that Sebastian Hess recorded for OehmsClassics. The 250th anniversary of the death of G.B. Platti on 11 January this year is sufficient reason for another recording! This CD, made as a co-production with BR Klassik, was recorded on August 2012 at St. Jacobus Kirche in Großlangheim. This time, too, Axel Wolf accompanies Sebastian Hess on the lute. Volume 3 is being supplemented with solo sonatas by Antonio Vivaldi.
