Built in the 1760s, "Blue House" is one of the most beautiful palaces of Basel from the late Baroque period. The wealthy owner, Lucas Sarasin, was an avid amateur musician; he put on not only an instrument but also a music collection, of which over 1,300 titles are preserved in the University Library Basel. The Trio Sonatas for two violins and basso continuo take, with 214 titles, a special place and were probably acquired in order for Sarasin and its concertmaster could play together: works of the best contemporary composers, of which for this SACD the "Mannheim" Johann and Carl Stamitz and Anton Fils and the "Milan" Sammartini, Conti, Pugnani and J. Chr. Bach were chosen. The award-winning young ensemble "The musical garden" makes this music "between the Baroque and Classical" into an impressive experience.
