Trio Sonnerie - La Gamme -Musical Pointers


01 February 2013
Musical Pointers
Peter Grahame Woolf

Sonnerie offers trios and gamba solos by Marais, including the monumental La Gamme (900 bars played continuously on an ascending harmonic scale), coupled with Forqueray fils' suite No 1 for gamba. Nothing you're likely to know; all of it riveting, original music presented with scholarship and given enduring vitality by Sonnerie.
