Sonatas for viola da gamba and obligato harpsichord BWV 1027-29

Juan Manuel Quintana, Céline Frisch
    • Apple Music

    While they belong to the German tradition, in these sonatas Bach invented a curious division of the parts in which the viola da gamba lies midway between the bass and the principle voice (the treble) of the harpsichord. This particularity in the writing and their exceptional ingenuity place these works among the great masterpieces in the viola da gamba repertoire, both fascinating and terrifying to performers.

    This title was released for the first time in 2001.
