An audiophile premium concert recording of the Concerto for two violins & orchestra in B flat major by Gasparo Visconti (1683-1713) from Bad Homburg Castle (Germany) 2012, recorded, released & created by Andreas Otto Grimminger & Josef-Stefan Kindler, performed according to the traditions of the time by the European Union Baroque Orchestra. Music Director & Violin Soloist: Riccardo Minasi. 

The European Union Baroque Orchestra, a cultural ambassador for the European Union, is like no other orchestra: EUBO auditions and selects completely new personnel every year. EUBO’s ephemeral existence makes its concerts special: live performances enjoying all the technical accomplishment of the best young Baroque musicians in Europe, allied to an infectious undimmed sense of discovery and enjoyment. Members of EUBO come from all over the EU to gain experience, working together for a six-month season with Music Director Lars Ulrik Mortensen and some of the world’s leading guest directors, including Enrico Onofri, Roy Goodman, Alexis Kossenko, Ton Koopman, Christina Pluhar, Margaret Faultless, Riccardo Minasi, Paul Agnew and Gottfried von der Goltz. Tours take them to all corners of Europe - from celebrated city concert halls, to seaside summer festivals, to monasteries nestling in autumnal forests, and to winter celebrations in beautiful churches. And at the centre of these great arcs of European travelling EUBO has established residencies in several cities, most notably as "orchestra-in-residence" in Echternach, Luxembourg, where, with the support of its local partners, it is creating a centre of excellence for Baroque music. EUBO’s activities are supported with a grant from the European Commission’s programme "cultural ambassadors". Flying the flag for Europe, "EUBO is" as President José Manuel Barroso says, "a perfect symbol of the power of integration, a subtle and potent instrument of harmonisation between people and nations". "EUBO has greatly contributed to the vitality of European baroque ensembles." (Mrs. Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth). "Rarely have I seen so much smiling communication and listening between musicians on a concert stage. As a result, EUBO’s concert was a delicate, joyous gem. Talent oozed from the stage." (Hugo Shirley, The Daily Telegraph)

Riccardo Minasi, born in Rome 1978, has performed both as soloist and as concertmaster with Le Concert des Nations, Accademia Bizantina, Concerto Italiano, Il Giardino Armonico, Al Ayre Español, Orchestra dell’ Accademia Nazionale di S.Cecilia, and Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid. As well as the European Union Baroque Orchestra, he has conducted the Kammerakademie of Potsdam, Zurich Kammerorchester, Balthasar Neumann Ensemble, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, L’Arpa Festante, Recreation-Grosses Orchester of Graz, Attersee-Akademie Orchestra, Ensemble Resonanz, Il Complesso Barocco and the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra. He was invited by Kent Nagano to perform as concertmaster at the Belcanto Festival in Knowlton and collaborated as historical advisor for the Montrèal Symphony Orchestra in Canada. In 2010 he worked as assistant conductor, concertmaster and editor of the upcoming new critical edition of Bellini’s opera Norma with Cecilia Bartoli and Thomas Hengelbrock. He has given masterclasses at the Juilliard School of Music in New York, the Longy School of Music in Cambridge (USA), the Sibelius Academy of Helsinki, the Chinese Culture University of Taipei, the Conservatory of Sydney, the Zurich Opera House, and at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole.
