Notes & Reviews:

For gamba players, this repertoire is the pinnacle of the solo literature. There are no fewer than 5 books of beautiful suites and so-called "pieces de caracter". This album includes both suites and "pieces de caractere", resulting in great contrasts of affect, character and tone color. These pieces are composed and notated without barlines and rhythmic indications; the effect is that of a quasi-improvisatory style, where the changing harmonies draw all the attention.
