 Amazing chorale variations for solo Viola da Gamba August 3, 2015 By Warren Harris See All My Reviews "This two CD set consists of arrangements of hymns by an unknown person of the 17th-century with the initials “J.R.” collected in the “Berlin Gamba Book” (as it is known). The works themselves are clearly not written for the solo instrument, but the arrangements are so wonderfully done that the solemn peacefulness and dignity of each work is readily apparent. And listening to them being performed by a soloist of Mr. Berger’s caliber is pleasurable indeed. It is hard for me to single out any one piece of the 35 here as each has something to say to the listener, and to fully absorb the impact of this gentle and purposeful music will take many more hours of listening. Be warned – it is completely and totally captivating, and the sonorities of the instrument became a welcome companion for the 3 or 4 listening experiences I have treated myself to. The liner notes are short but informative, and the recording quality is outstanding. The atmosphere of the St. Andreas Church in Cologne, Germany, is undeniably part of the wonderful texture captured by the microphones. If you adore Viola da Gamba, then this disc is for you. Very Highly Recommended!" Report Abuse
