Product description

Product Description

Considered as one of leading viola players worldwide, Antoine Tamestit decided to record Bach six Suites BWV1007-1012, in two volumes. This first volume presents Suites 1, 3 and 5 These universal and fascinating works have been Tamestit s favorites almost for ever and those that made him switch from the violin to the viola when he was 10 years old! Tamestit s playing and the exceptional sound of his Stradivarius shed new light on those eternal masterpieces as he continues to develop an intense career through concerto, chamber and solo performances. 'When I discovered Bach's Cello Suites at the age of ten, they were such a revelation to me that I asked my violin teacher of the time if I could change instruments and switch to the cello. Having convinced me that, in that case, I would have to relearn virtually the entire technique of the instrument, she had the idea of showing me a viola and playing it for me. Another revelation, and love at first sight! After just a few days I put viola strings on my little violin, which sounded so deep, especially on the C string, that I felt the vibrations through my whole body. Since then I have never regretted choosing the viola, especially as I very soon had the opportunity to play transcriptions of those very Cello Suites. It was such a joy to me that I spent weeks just playing by ear a few bars of certain movements and begged my teachers to let me work on them.' Antoine Tamestit

Review

mind-blowing virtuosity (and a warm, richly-toned instrument), Tamestit s Bach is lighter than you will ever have heard it before ... he is able to shine new light on the detail ... breathtaking renditions --Brian Clark, Early Music Review April 2013
