This booklet contains two trio sonatas for violin and viola da gamba from the Partiturbuch Ludwig of 1662, an important German manuscript collection of 17th century instrumental music. The composers, Johann Michael Nicolai and Samuel Friedrich Capricornus, both served at the Stuttgart court around 1650, so these pieces can give a good impression of the instrumental music cultivated there at that time.
