Ere Lievonen  –  News & agenda


New CD release!

A new recording of violin sonatas by Johann Georg Pisendel (1687–1755) has been released on the Brilliant Classics label. The CD contains three sonatas for violin and basso continuo and one solo violin sonata, featuring Tomasz Plusa as the soloist on Baroque violin. In between these sonatas, there are also some lute solos by Silvius Leopold Weiss (1686–1750), performed on theorbo by Earl Christy. The basso continuo group in these highly demanding sonatas is completed by Robert Smith (cello) and Ere Lievonen (harpsichord).
