Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Manchester Gamba Book is the largest extant manuscript of 17th century viol music, now kept in the Watson music collection in Manchester. Different in many regards from the later cello, the secrets of viola da gamba performance style are revealed in this priceless volume, including Gervise Gerrarde's Paven (C2 ), the most richly ornamented piece in the instrument's literature. Other contributions include settings of popular English songs of the period, and from otherwise unknown musicians such as Stephen Goodall and Richard Sumarte.Dietmar Berger now lives in Cologne and plays the cello as well as the viola da gamba in renowned ensembles such as the Delos Trio Köln (with Gudrun Höbold, violin, and Hubert Käppel, guitar) both in Germany and abroad; he appears as a soloist on numerous television and CD recordings.

The Observer, July 2012
Here's one for the specialist...Dietmar Berger plays with admirable commitment but it's heavy going for all but the most avid devotee.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
He has good fingers, and more attention to rhythm would have made this a really fine disc. As it is, I can only recommend it to viol players who want to hear this unusual material even under less than ideal circumstances.
