A moving wordless prayer

At the intersection of faith and physics, Heinrich Biber wrote a meditation on the fifteen ‘Mysteries of the Rosary’, a summary of important events in the lives of Jesus and the Virgin Mary. In each sonata the violin is tuned differently, which often results in wondrous sonorities. Music for daredevils like Cecilia Bernardini!
