The works of Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Georg Muffat and Johann Paul von Westhoff were of fundamental importance for the development of violin music in the 17th century––they laid the foundations for Bach’s highly virtuosic violin sonatas and other later works. Isabelle Faust, together with Kristian Bezuidenhout, Elizabeth Kenny, and Kristin von der Goltz, presents a genealogy of this Baroque blossoming.
