Les Voix Humaines – Human Voices / Angelos Repapis & Nikos Panagiotidis (Greece)

September 29, 2019 at 9:00 pm EEST

This is how the French composer and virtuoso viola da gamba player Marin Marais (1656-1728) entitled one of his short compositions for his beloved string instrument.

Most likely this has been a way for him to declare that viola da gamba with its high tender notes and its deep bass notes is the musical instrument which resembles the human voice more than any other. This programme highlights the characteristics and the matching of the two instruments.

In addition to  works of  M. Marais it includes representative works from late Renaissance Spanish composers, such as Diego Ortiz, until middle Baroque period French composers such as Robert de Visée.
