Gottfried Finger (ca.1660-1730) - Intrada in A-Major from the Codex Sünchinger

Gottfried Finger, a Moravian viola da gamba virtuoso and composer, worked at the courts of James II of England, Queen Sophie Charlotte in Berlin, and Duke Charles Philipp in Innsbruck. Finger composed operas but is primarily remembered for his chamber music, surviving in collections from 1688, 1690, 1691 and 1701.Finger’s Intrada and Curiosa were likely written during his time in England before 1702 and were purchased by Joseph Franz von Seinsheim, Munich ambassador to electoral court at Mannheim, a court where Finger was employed. ViolMedium is performing from the first edition edited by Dr. Fred Flassig, Edition Walhall (edition-walhall.de) from the Codex Sünchinger held by the Archive of Castle Sünching near Regensburg, Germany.
