Catalogue Number: 02P035
Label: Pan Classics
Reference: PC 10295
Description: Fritz spent his entire career in the musical backwater of Geneva but his sonatas are fine examples of the "mixed taste" which used French, Italian and German styles to construct a unique personal style. Plenty of virtuosity too; some called him the "devil violinist of Geneva"! Plamena Nikitassova (violin), Maya Amrein (cello), Jörg-Andreas Bötticher (harpsichord).
