CD Information

"Joachim Held has put together a program of four suites by Johann Georg Weichenberger (1676-1740). The little-known Graz composer was not a full-time musician. He was an employee of the Viennese court accountancy. Nevertheless, he is considered an influential lutenist in the Austro-Bohemian region in the early 18th century.
Joachim Held has not only made an unknown repertoire accessible, but he once again lives up to his reputation as one of the best instrumentalists of our time. In his performance we admire the articulatory versatility and very variably executed dynamics. Beyond all elegance, beyond technical refinement, however, his playing captivates with sensitivity, richness of nuances, in short, with a high musicality.
