Under the reign of Augustus II the Strong, Dresden developed into one of the most important centres of the European music scene. He brought the most important composers and musicians to his court. BR Klassik respectfully called Xenia Löffler "the queen of Baroque oboe". The founding member of Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin presents on her new album a fine selection of oboe sonatas from the Dresden repertoire with works by Vivaldi, Platti, Stölzel, Fasch, Hasse et al. Her fellow musicians include Michael Bosch (oboe), Györgyi Farkas (bassoon), and Vaclav Luks (horn).
