Additional information

Antoine Forqueray earned the nickname ‘devil’ not just for the virtuosity of his viola da gamba playing but also for his fiery temperament. He was in fact one of the most important composers of the French Grand Siècle. The Italian viol virtuoso Vittorio Ghielmi, accompanied by three colleagues of international fame, Rodney Prada, Luca Pianca and Lorenzo Ghielmi make light of the difficulty of these pieces, but infuse them with all the poetry and expressiveness they deserve. Antoine Forqueray’s brilliant suite in G major and his rarely performed suite in G minor are complemented by some of the choicest numbers of the viol chamber music repertoire composed by the Forqueray family.
