JOHANN PAUL VON WESTHOFF (1656-1705): 6 Suites for Solo Violin.

Catalogue Number: 03V017

Label: Ricercar

Reference: RIC412

Format: CD

Price: $18.98

Description: These suites, all but one from 1696, embody a brave attempt to treat the violin not as a melodic instrument but rather as a chordal instrument that had the ability to play polyphonic lines. Also of interest is the use of a different playing technique involving the way the violin is held and the use of a shorter bow. Plamena Nikitassova (violin).
