Notes & Reviews:

Nothing could stop the irresistible ascent of the violin and the cello; the last decade of the 18th century was the final gasp of the viola da gamba. In both France and Germany, the registers of musical chapels clearly show the progressive reduction, to the point of disappearance, of viola da gamba players, while the number of cellists grew. Nonetheless, until the last the viola could count on very fertile ground!
