Description: Although Weckmann's cantatas and keyboard music have received some attention over the last couple of decades, his chamber music hasn't, making this reissue attractive and useful. Eight of the sonatas are for cornettino, violin, bassoon, trombone and continuo (two are trios for cornettino, violin and continuo) whose rich, burnished and resonant sound is rather unusual. The nine short lieder are small-scale pieces written for particular personages in the composer's Hamburg milieu. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Gerta De Reyghere (soprano), La Fenice, Ricercar Consort, Siebe Henstra (harpsichord, clavichord). Original 1995 and 1998 Ricercar releases.
