Sonata Tramontana

With Carrie Krause & John Lenti

We are pleased to offer advance sales of BaMM’s inaugural recording, Sonata Tramontana, featuring Carrie Krause on baroque violin and John Lenti on theorbo. This will be the first commercially-released period instrument recording in Montana.  It contains our favorite music especially suited for this instrumentation—sublime sonatas from 17th century Germany, to soothe the aesthetic and intimate cravings of the soul.
