The Rosary Sonatas by H.I.F. von B, the first great violin virtuoso, are one of history of art’s unique masterpieces . When the echoes of the wise Paracelso were still heard in Salzburg, the city which would later be home for Mozart’s universal genius, one of the most singular and exquisite pieces of music ever written was created. Although it was composed around 1678, there was no news of its existence until 1889, and it was published for the first time in  the Viena Jugendstill of 1905.  This new historicist vision, not foreign to the sounds of the 21st century, brings together the people of the two periods, demonstrating that some emotions of the past are very close to those of the  present.  
MUSIca ALcheMica was founded by the Spanish violinist Lina Tur Bonet in 2004 in Germany. This flexible ensemble, which is mainly devoted to chamber music projects and recordings, aims at reaching alchemical inspiration, where the sum of elements and disciplines, the omniscience, their interactions, search and curiosity, transform and achieve a final sublimation through music.Following the international success of an album with unpublished Vivaldi music, they recorded these fifteen singular pieces that have to be performed with a violin that has been re-tuned.
