“Colourful music by Schmelzer and Fux, pungent sounds from the end of Harnoncourt's pioneering 1960s…" BBC Music Magazine
A series of the finest and rare recordings make up the one and only album ever recorded by Nikolaus Harnoncourt for EMI (now Warner Classics). A wide-ranging and superb collection of tunes which will transport you directly at the Leopold I court in Vienna in the late XVIIth century.
