Information: About bundles

A bundle makes it possible to get a better price for a certain set of AEOLUS CDs.

You may have noticed that here on the AEOLUS website certain CDs and SACDs are displayed to be available as part of a "bundle". So what is a bundle? A bundle is a set of several complete AEOLUS CDs. In case you buy a bundle you pay significantly less than you would pay for the single CDs, but you get the exact same CDs, including original packaging and original booklet. 

This way we created bundles e.g. for some of our composer series, e.g. Froberger, Maleingreau, etc. Please find here all bundles on offer.

Please note that these bundles are only available here on the AEOLUS website, not elsewhere.

  • play_circle_outline A musical introduction to the "Rhine Suite XXVII"

The recently discovered "Kortkamp” manuscript is a sensation not only for Froberger enthusiasts: it provides an unexpected answer to the more than 200-year-old question as to the suite the 18th-century musicologist Johann Mattheson had in mind when he referred to Froberger’s "Allemande faite en passant le Rhin.”

The E-Minor Suite XXVII is found in the Kortkamp manuscript along with the detailed description of an event that took place on the Rhine. Numbers in the text refer to specific passages in the music. Such an itemization of a programmatic work is unique in musical history. After commenting on the find in the German early music magazine CONCERTO, Bob van Asperen has now recorded parts of the new manuscript, offering a vivid rendition of the important ”Rhine” suite.
Among the other pieces on this disc are additional new contributions to Froberger’s oeuvre. In the 48-page booklet, Bob van Asperen outlines the new insights with the help of numerous illustrations.
The instrument used for this recording is a French harpsichord from the collection of the Württembergisches Landesmuseum, Stuttgart, that only recently could be attributed to Claude Labrèche (c.1780). Its rich sound is eminently suitable for the works recorded here.
