Ensemble Augelletti: The Library of a Prussian Princess

Ensemble Augelletti, led by recorder player and researcher Olwen Foulkes, presents this beautiful, at times vigorous and sensuous, and always historically fascinating album centred on Anna Amalia, Princess of Prussia, Abbess of Quedlinburg (and sister of Frederick the Great). She was uniquely involved in the musical life of 18th Century Berlin, and as Olwen writes in the album’s extensive programme notes, this album ‘grew out of a desire to celebrate her astonishing musical life as both a composer, a patron, an organist, a promoter, and a curator of musical scores.’

 Early Music Review:

“... this imaginative programme plan allows for the very familiar to rub shoulders with the thoroughly unfamiliar …The playing from the Augelletti Ensemble throughout this CD is delightful and sympathetic…”
