15 pieces for viola da gamba by Laurent Delvallée
This collection devoted to the viola da gamba contains fifteen pieces, some of which illustrate through the prism of the contemporary imagination the musical splendors of the eighteenth century.
Among this set, three titles evoke the characterizations used by Hubert Le Blanc in his Défense de la basse de viole to designate the violist Antoine Forqueray when he portrays him as having affected as whimsical and bizarre.
There is also a musical portrait of the Cour de Sceaux where this famous violist and other famous musicians of the time participated in important festivities, as well as an evocation of the magnificence of the Versailles Court.
The atmospheres of these pieces also propose different affects, plays on motifs throughout the range of the instrument, and highlights of certain sonorities linked to the making of the viola da gamba, sometimes adopting a serious tone or appearing to be so, and sometimes being more fanciful.
They are intended for the amateur as well as for the professional, to play in a warm intimacy or in a concert, and also as an object of study or entertainment in conservatories and music schools.
