Heavenly in many respects: Biber’s ‘Rosenkranz Sonatas’, also known as the ‘Mystery Sonatas’, are dedicated to the Queen of Heaven and are among the hardest sonatas written for the violin. A selection from them along with other, seldom-played bravura sonatas from the pen of the same composer will be offered to the Baroque Festival audience at this matinee – played in heavenly style by a violinist of positively celestial mastery.


Together with his long-term musical partner Wolfgang Glüxam and his musician friends Pierre Pitzl and David Bergmüller, audience favourite Hiro Kurosaki returns to Melk and gifts us a morning full of virtuosic and heart-warming sounds.
