More Info:

The Parensi manuscript from the Biblioteca Nazionale Palatina in Parma is an exceptional historical document full of wonderful music. The name Paolo Parensi is mentioned on the title page - it could have been the owner, copyist or player of this collection. The composers of the individual works, on the other hand, are not mentioned and can only partly be determined by comparing them with other sources; often the authorship remains only conjecture or completely in the dark. "The Parensi Manuscript" is thus an approach to the unknown - a snapshot of a hitherto anonymous recorder repertoire from 18th century Italy. With this recording, the young recorder player Tabea Schwartz presents a fantastic debut release.
