Almost as soon as he arrived in England, the violin playing of German virtuoso Thomas Baltzar (?1631–63) caused a sensation. He was praised in particular for conveying polyphonic textures on the violin, playing “on that single instrument a full consort.” Baltzar’s technical accomplishment was such that one listener even bent down to see if his feet were cloven, since he had played beyond human capacities. This edition gathers for the first time all of Thomas Baltzar’s known works for unaccompanied violin as well as his divisions on the tune “John, Come Kiss Me Now” for violin and basso continuo.
