Florian Deuter's Cologne-based string ensemble explores the gentle charms of one of the great unifying figures in Baroque music, Georg Muffat, who took it as his life's work to encourage 'the harmony of many nations and an amiable peace' in music. As well as sonatas from one of his most important collections, we hear music from some of the French, Italian and Austrian composers whose works influenced him.
'Sensual and catchy ... seductive freshness and elegance.'
