Notes & Reviews:
The Dutch composer and traveling virtuoso Johannes Scheck was one of the great virtuoso viola da gamba players of 17th c. Europe. This CD contains some of the most exciting and influential sonatas from his second published work: Tyd en Konst-Offningen op. 2, the first of his instrumental da gamba creations, (Amsterdam, 1688). Cuban-born, Spain-based da gambist Lixsania Fernandez plays six of these masterworks together with the ensemble she founded, Recondita Armonia.
American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Schenck's music is highly attractive, full of variety and virtuosity beautifully captured by Lixsania Fernandez and her co-players, Eduardo Eguez, theorbo, Esteban Mazer, harpsichord, and Maria Alejandra Saturno, cello. The music is in a variety of forms from dance suites to three-movement sonatas. I will follow future presentations with interest. This is a fine set of performances, recorded with clarity and played with stylistic integrity and evident enjoyment.
