Bach JS - Sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord, Arias - Pandolfo, Hunninger

 


 

 

 

 

Review:

Fifteen years on from his earlier recording of Bach’s three Sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord (on Harmonia Mundi, alongside Rinaldo Alessandrini), Paolo Pandolfo is now returning to this repertory with a thoroughly-rethought approach, the fruit of active and concentrated years Paolo Pandolfo of consideration, study and research into the inherent possibilities of his instrument. Given the basic differing natures of these two instruments, the performance of these works very often turns – in Pandolfo’s words – into a “musical argument”, rather than what is demanded by the music’s essential nature: a “musical conversation” in which the score achieves “transparency and eloquence”.

Performers:  Paolo Pandolfo,  Markus Hunninger,  Harry Van der Kamp,  Michael Chance,  François Joubert-Caillet
