SILVIUS LEOPOLD WEISS (1687–1750)

Sonata No. 20 in D minor

Sonata No. 14 in G minor

JOHANN HOFFMANN (1770–c.1814)

Sonata in G major

Sonata in D minor

Birgit Schwab (baroque lute, archlute)

Daniel Ahlert (mandolin)

The German lutenist Silvius Leopold Weiss and the Viennese mandolinist Johann Hoffmann were considered the greatest virtuosos of their day in their respective fields.

Inspired by the composer’s free treatment of some of his own works, the two virtuosic Sonatas by Weiss are here performed in versions for lute and mandolin, while the two melodious sonatas for mandolin and bass (here performed on a lute) by Hoffmann reflect the renaissance of the six-course mandolin experienced in cultivated Viennese circles at the turn of the 19th century.

Birgit Schwab and Daniel Ahlert have been performing together as a duo since 1992. Previous collaborations have been well received: “The technical side is superb….. the interplay is immaculate.” MusicWeb
