SFZ MUSIC, the independent label for His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, are proud to announce their latest release, the debut solo album by one of their core members, Adam Woolf.
Adam, one of the most sought-after players in Europe, presents a varied programme of solos works from the early baroque designed to show off, or imitate, the purest-known form of music making - the human voice. He plays with the agility and virtuosity of a violinist or recorder player, without losing the power and velvet tone of his instrument. Ably accompanied by a crack group of continuo players, this is a haunting and enchanting recording, a valuable addition to any lover of Renaissance vocal and wind music, and concrete proof of the vocal qualities of the Sackbut.
“Woolf again impresses the listener with impeccable intonation coupled with virtuosic technique, always with suave phrasing” Historic Brass Society
