The multiple award-winning recordings of the Kammerorchester Basel are a genuine asset to the record market. With “Bologna 1666” they take their listeners on a musical journey to what was probably the most important musical centre of 17th-century Italy. Founded in 1666, the Accademia Filarmonica di Bologna, one of Italy’s oldest academies of music, influenced the musical life of its times far beyond the borders of Italy itself. It is thus all the more astonishing that with few exceptions, such as Giuseppe Torelli or Lorenzo Gaetano Zavateri, most of its composers have fallen into oblivion. For this recording, the Kammerorchester Basel, headed by its concert-mistress Julia Schröder, have unearthed outstanding masterpieces.
