Nearly all of the music from the seventeenth-century court at Dresden was unfortunately lost when Frederick II of Prussia bombarded the city in 1756. Fragments of the repertoire, however, have been preserved in the libraries of the courts of Protestant northern Europe, which were connected to Dresden by friendship or familial ties. Some of these works are presented here as they have been performed and recorded by the ensemble Musica Antiqua Köln, directed by Reinhard Goebel.
Dresden Sonatas 3 presents two works for three violins, two violas, and basso continuo by Johann Wilhelm Furchheim (ca. 1635–82), as well as the Rondeau in C Major by Johann Joseph Fux (1660–1741), which features violino piccolo and bassoon, with an accompanying ensemble of violin, two violas, and basso continuo.
