Label: Coviello Classics
Reference: COV 91601
Description: Dating from 1735, this set of gamba fantasies is chock-full of playing techniques and forms of expression, all couched in the then-de rigueur galant style while also offering five fugal or canonically imitative movements in a nod to the instrument’s 17th-century heyday. Thomas Fritzsch (viola da gamba).
