The "Six Three-Part Preludes and Fugues" are regarded as a unique testimony to Mozart's profound interest in the works of Bach. Or was it a brilliant contemporary of his who arranged the two preludes and five fugues by Johann Sebastian, and one fugue by Wilhelm Friedemann for string trio and supplemented the collection with further preludes? The new editions put the music text of Johann Nepomuk David's edition of the parts  to the test, especially the editor's practical arrangement, which reflected the performance style of his time. These new editions go one step further, also in a performance-practical sense. The publication of the score and (orchestral) parts also enables string orchestras to play this piece for the first time – an instrumental possibility that is perfectly legitimate, both musically and historically. It is a fascinating addition to the repertoire that one can recommend to every chamber orchestra.

Geschichte vom Soldaten. Das Kammerorchester umfasst hier aber 30 bis 35 Musiker. Thema der Oper ist die delikate Geschichte des Kontrabassisten Smytschkow dem seine Kleider gestohlen werden als er vor einem abendlichen Konzert im Fluss badet. Er trifft dort auf die Tochter seines furstlichen Konzertveranstalters der ein gleiches Schicksal widerfahren ist. So erlebt das ungleiche Paar eine unvorhergesehene Begegnung der ganz besonderen Art mit merkwurdigem Ausgang. Die Kollegen des Kontrabassisten ein Klarinettist und ein Flotist spielen ebenfalls eine Rolle in dieser unglaublichen ,,Geschichte um einen Kontrabass die von einem Schauspieler (Anton Tschechow personlich) erzahlt wird.

of Stravinsky's L'histoire du soldat. However here the chamber ensemble comprises 30 to 35 musicians. The theme of the opera is the tender story of a double bass player by the name of Smytchkov whose clothes are stolen as he is bathing in a river before his evening concert. There he runs into the daughter of his prince who is organizing the concert. Her clothes have also disappeared. The unequal pair thus comes together under very unusual circumstances which leads to very unusual consequences... The double bass player's colleagues a clarinetist and a flutist also play a role in this incredible story of a double bass which is related by an actor (Anton Chekhov himself).
