Notes and Editorial Reviews

Considered as one of leading viola players worldwide, Antoine Tamestit decided to record Bach six Suites BWV1007-1012, in two volumes. This first volume presents Suites 1, 3 and 5 These universal and fascinating works have been Tamestit’s favorites almost for ever and those that made him switch from the violin to the viola when he was 10 years old! Tamestit’s playing and the exceptional sound of his Stradivarius shed new light on those eternal masterpieces as he continues to develop an intense career through concerto, chamber and solo performances.
