Jordi Savall is an exceptional figure in todays music world. For more than thirty years he has been devoted to the rediscovery and performance of neglected musical treasures as a soloist and director of his three ensembles. He has restored an essential repertoire to all those with ears to hear it. Except for the happy few who already revere it, the viola da gamba, is an instrument so refined ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracker from Jordi Savall 10 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent disc of baroque solo viol music from Jordi Savall. There are pieces by a variety of composers, many of whom you would expect to find in such a programme, like Marais, Sainte-Colombe and Forqueray, but there are also fine pieces by Schenck, de Machy and d'Hervelois whom I hadn't come across before. It's a lovely, varied programme and a fascinating and beautiful listen throughout.

In his notes Savall stresses that commentators of the time suggested that the viol these pieces should sound close to the human voice. This leads to a freely-phrased and intimate performance which he pulls off superbly. Savall has been one of the world's very finest gamba players for decades now and his superb technique and musicianship shine through this disc. My only small reservation comes in the selected movements from the Bach Cello Suites where it seems to me that the rhythmic freedom means that Bach's essential pulse is a little lost, but it's a tiny niggle and a very personal one which may not bother others at all.

The recorded sound is excellent, beautifully catching Savall's lovely viol tone (and his occasional groaning along with the music) and the presentation and notes are of Alia Vox's usual excellent, lavish standard. I warmly recommend this disc - it's another cracker from Jordi Savall.
