Notes & Reviews:
The great viola da gamba player August Wenzinger (1905-1996), one of the most important pioneers in the rediscovery of Early Music, is featured here in a rich program with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis ranging from 17th-century ensemble fantasies by Gibbons and Purcell to Bach s complete gamba sonatas, and including a Cello Concerto (with Wenzinger as soloist) and String Quintet by Boccherini. Many first time releases on CD.
