Notes & Reviews:

Johannes Schenck, although little known today, enjoyed an outstanding reputation not only as a composer but also as the leading viola da gamba virtuoso of his time. The selection of pieces recorded here are demanding compositions often verging on the limits of playability and including breathtaking leaps over all six strings with hardly a moment to spare.
