In its complexity and individuality, Johann Jacob Froberger´s oeuvre represents one of the greatest treasures of 17th-century harpsichord repertoire.
For this recording, Anne Marie Dragosits have concentrated on Froberger´s lyrical side, with a strong tendency towards the French taste; however, as „postcards“ from his southern travels, three toccatas and a set of variations written in the Italian style are also included.
Anne Marie Dragosits was born in Tyrol. After studying with Wolfgang Glüxam, Tini Mathot and Ton Koopman, she performed with renowned ensembles like vivante, braucco and the Munich Baroque Soloists all over Europe. Her special passion is the intense study of historical harpsichords. (www.dragosits.org)
