5.0 out of 5 stars All alone, by the telephone ..., 27 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: J.S. Bach: Die Sonaten Für Viola Da Gamba Und Cembalo (MP3 Download)
Bach may well have written these trio sonatas as a farewell to the viola da gamba: after all, it was he himself who was mainly responsible for promoting the violincello as an instrument of superlative expression, made manifest in his definitive sonatas for unaccompanied cello. Yet there is still a lot to be heard in the sonorities of the viola da gamba: a lot less versatile or expressive than the upstart cello, but still with a comforting walnut sound that goes so well with the lively picked-out strumming of the harpsichord - also on its way out, soon to be replaced by the fortepiano of Mozart's time. These sonatas, played with such accomplishment and mutual interplay by Jordi Savall and Ton Koopman, provide a very enjoyable experience in sonority and rhythm; but look out for some startling previews of modern times! In the third movement of the first sonata you will hear, unmistakeably, material for Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet" ballet score: and try not to hum "All alone, by the telephone" while listening to the second movement of the second sonata!
