Heavans Joy: The world of the virtuoso viol

Devotees have always thought of the viol as the perfect instrument, able to sing as expressively as the human voice and play chords like the Orphic lute. And surely the only thing better than one viol is two viols, especially in the hands of virtuosos Paolo Pandolfo and Amélie Chemin. Together they take us on a trip through time and space, finding connections between the late Elizabethan music of eccentric soldier Tobias Hume and the later improvisatory divisions of Christopher Simpson, through subtle French baroque suites by the mysterious Mr de Ste. Colombe and the ‘devilish’ Forqueray, to reach the Classical calm of Berlin-based Christoph Schaffrath, via the unmissable music of J.S. Bach.

‘…one of the most brilliant and poetic of the instrument’s current exponents…’ Gramophone
