Bach Sonatas for viola da gamba & harpsichord

Not only are J.S. Bach's sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord a touchstone of the viol repertoire, they are also among the composer's finest works of chamber music. These intensely expressive pieces showcase Bach's multifaceted mastery of form and style at its very best.

Suitte d'ûn Gout Étranger

Both infamous and remarkable for its technical and musical demands, the Suitte D’Un Goût Étranger by celebrated viol virtuoso and composer Marin Marais exemplifies French baroque chamber music at the height of its lavish elegance.  This concert-length suite for viol and continuo treats the listener to a collection of pièces de charactère, each extremely virtuosic, descriptive, and adventurous!
