Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Johannes Schenk Le Nymphe di Rheno contains twelve sonatas for two bass viols without figured bass. He makes use of the Italian sonata form as he does in his church sonatas and chamber sonata with their dance movements. Wieland Kuijken, a pioneer of the viola da gamba revival, and Francois Joubert-Caillet recorded these sonatas in the wonderful atmosphere of the superb Romanesque church of Notre-Dame de Centeilles in the Minervois region of France.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The program includes Sonatas III in D, VII in B minor, II in A minor, XI in G, VIII in C minor, and XII in D minor. Lejeune notes that Schenck blends French and Italian baroque sonata forms in all. Schenck's music bears all the grace of an accomplished master. The opportunity of writing for two skilled performers. Violists echo each other's phrases, sometimes adding new ornaments, one leading the other to ever greater heights of virtuosity, sometimes by actually dividing individual notes between them. The chaconne that concludes Sonata XI is particularly impressive, both for its length and demanding virtuosity. Wieland Kuijken and Frantois Joubert- Caillet are clearly equal to the task. It would have, and still does, take two extremely talented violists to bring off these beautiful sonatas. Simply outstanding.
