ZELENKA SONATAS

The ensemble's debut disc of Zelenka Sonatas is scheduled for release by Linn Records in Autumn 2012.

Ensemble Marsyas has recorded three of the extraordinary trio sonatas by the Bohemian composer Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745) for violin, two oboes, bassoon and continuo on period instruments. These sonatas represent the most spectacularly challenging music ever written for wind instruments in terms of their musical integrity and their breathtaking scale.
