Image of Phantasm


Phantasm, an award-winning consort of viols, was founded in 1994 by Laurence Dreyfus. Inspired by the great twentieth-century string quartets, Phantasm enjoys taking risks in its search for renditions that renew the expressive traditions of early music. The ensemble catapulted into international prominence when its debut CD of works by Henry Purcell won a Gramophone Award for the Best Baroque ... Read more in Amazon's Phantasm Store

William Lawes was one of the greatest composer's during the first half of the 17th century.His consort of 6 parts was his last major work before he was tragically killed in 1645 fighting for his patron King Charles 1st.It robbed the musical world of a creative genius and one only wonders what more lavish compositions would have flowed from his pen.

Lawes 5 part consort is good but it's in his 6 part consort that he shines the brightest,which the superb ensemble Phantasm take full advantage of.Their playing is immaculate,which is exactly what this music demands and they are recorded with great care.Lawes consort music is more experimental than his distinguished contemporary John Jenkins.

English 17th century consort music continued to flourish after Lawes and Jenkins with Matthew Locke's 4 part consort before reaching it's peak with Henry Purcell's trio sonatas.

A Mastepiece of consort music 20 Nov. 2009
By R. Rockwell - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I must thank the Rough Guide for recommending this perfectly played consort music by Phantasm of music for six viols by William Lawes. Even though this an expensive imported CD it is worth the expense. As was the style at the time they were composed there are dance movements and using melancholy music. Unlike with their other disc of Lawes with fewer viols, the complexity off these sets is quite overwhelming but just as beautiful to listen to. I was quite overwhelmed at several points by the beauty and was brought to tears Wow this is wonderful music. . I would highly recommend this CD to all listeners of Classical music as well as their other disk .as well the Royal Suites
