CD J.S. Bach Sonatas for viola (da gamba) and harpsichord, 2021

“This is a very audible, expressively moved conversation between the two musicians, the contrapuntal and concentrated play between the voices appears spirited and vibrant.”

…“This creates a slight inner tension in the treatment of tempo, where the musicians keep each other in check and bring the whole into a balance that never gets slack.”

“It is content-rich and durable music in a recording that does not have to be ashamed of anyone.”
