Johann Sebastian Bach: Sonaten für Viola da Gamba und Cembalo
From the very first notes, it is clear that Bach wrote this piece for a top-level gambist, as the musical and technical demands are way above average. The harpsichordist, too, must have been a very experienced musician, although we do not have to search long for him, as it is highly likely that Bach performed this part himself. It probably dates from his Leipzig period, especially as the harpsichord takes on both the upper part and the accompaniment, which is the sort of innovation that Bach was trying out in Leipzig. But the question is who could have played the virtuoso gamba part.
Bach, Johann Sebastian - Triosonate F-dur nach BWV 1028 - 2 Altblockflöten und Bc.
It has now been determined that Johann Sebastian Bach 's sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord were written in the early s, a time when the great virtuosos of the viola da gamba had either passed on or were soon to do so. This becomes especially poignant when considering the Sonata No. Of course, the harpsichord is an equal partner in all of these works, but the proficiency required of the viola da gamba player in the Sonata No. This, of course, is all the more reason to celebrate the fact that today, thanks to the period performance movement, there are masters of the viola da gamba once again. Bach 's second sonata is laid out in sonata da chiesa format, four movements alternating slow and fast tempi. The short opening Adagio shows just how much Bach viewed the two instruments used here as partners, as it presents an arioso-like melody, but interweaves the melody parts in the viola da gamba and harpsichord such that each is essential to the overall line.
