Bach gamba sonatas in outstanding performances

The three sonata for viola da gamba and obbligato harpsichord (BWV 1027-1029)include some of Bach’s most remarkable chamber music. Marked by a wealth of contrapuntal invention, a keen sensitivity to texture, and, above all, an insistent deliberation on the nature of the sonata genre, these works command a prominent position in the composer’s oeuvre.

Gambist og cellist Laurence Dreyfus pursues a dual career as both performer and musicologist. He has recorded for Simax, Harmonia Munci and Meridian. Dreyfus plays a french-style seven string viola da gambe made in 1979 by curtis bryant of watertown, Mass., USA. Ketil Haugsand has specialised in French and German repertoire and has toured extensively throughout europe and the united states as a recitalist, harpsichord soloist and conductor.
