Fantasticus - Rie Kimura (violin), Robert Smith (viola da gamba) & Guillermo Brachetta (harpsichord)
Amsterdam-based Baroque trio, Fantasticus, return to the Resonus label, following a number of highly-acclaimed releases, with this scintillating and inspiring survey of works from the German stylus fantasticus period.

Charting the rise of the Baroque era, Fantasticus explore the extravagance that flourished when composers and instrumentalists dared to traverse the established limits of the usual.

Among the composers represented are Dieterich Buxtehude, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, Johann Philipp Krieger, Johann Jacob Walther and August Kühnel in a scintillating combination of works for trio and solo.

'If Rie Kimura’s violin was in the spotlight last time, here she must share it with both her colleagues and all three (of course!) shine. As I posibly wrote at the end of my previous review of this group, I cannot wait to hear what they turn their hands to next – they make me smile.'

Early Music Review

'[...] this Dutch-based trio is well schooled, as its name implies, in formal gestures and flair. The players respond keenly to the gestural extroversion of two sonatas by Philipp Erlebach and a teasing, passacaglia-like Capriccio by Johann Jacob Walther'
The Strad

'The three players of Fantasticus are [...] all excelling in the interpretations and technical prowess'
Andrew Benson-Wilson

'The music of the German Stylus Fanasticus period was highly inventive and experimental and whilst the shock value has diminished over the centuries this is music that still has charm and holds the attention.'
