Marc Rougier's curator insight, December 24, 2012 2:12 PM

Two legends (Yehudi Menuhin, violin, 1916 - 1999, and Ravi Shankar, sitar, 1920 - 2012), met and played, in a famous "West meets East" recording. Dare dive into the timeless music and discover Tenderness.

CMPC dossier : Auguste Tolbecque, portraits multiples d'un homme secret, sommaire | Viole de Gambe | Scoop.it
Le dossier « Auguste Tolbecque : portraits multiples d’un homme secret… » vous emmène à la découverte d’un homme mystérieux aux activités variées.
Luthier passionné, excellent instrumentaliste, et pédagogue reconnu, Auguste Tolbecque s’intéresse tout particulièrement à la reconstitution d’instruments anciens (violes de gambe, rebecs, crouth…). Il suivra en parallèle une carrière de musicien comme de nombreux membres de sa famille.
Au fil de sa vie, ce personnage énigmatique constituera également dans son domaine du Fort-Foucault, à Niort, une riche collection d’objets beaux-arts et d’instruments, témoignage de son œuvre et de ses intérêts.
Ce dossier présente ainsi divers objets issus de cette collection accompagnés de photographies anciennes, l’ensemble étant actuellement conservé et présenté au Musée Bernard d’Agesci de Niort.

Life After Death

Life After Death | Viole de Gambe | Scoop.it
It is normally thought that the bass viol or viola da gamba dropped out of British musical life in the 1690s, and that Henry Purcell was the last composer to write for it. Peter Holman shows how the gamba changed its role and function in the Restoration period under the influence of foreign music and musicians; how it was played and composed for by the circle of immigrant musicians around Handel; how it was part of the fashion for exotic instruments in the middle of the century; and how the presence in London of its greatest eighteenth-century exponent, Charles Frederick Abel, sparked off a revival in the 1760s and 70s. Later chapters investigate the gamba's role as an emblem of sensibility among aristocrats, artists, and intellectuals, including the Countess of Pembroke, Sir Edward Walpole, Ann Ford, Laurence Sterne, Thomas Gainsborough and Benjamin Franklin, and trace Abel's influence and legacy far into the nineteenth century. A concluding chapter is concerned with its role in the developing early music movement, culminating with Arnold Dolmetsch's first London concerts with old instruments in 1890. PETER HOLMAN is Professor of Historical Musicology at Leeds University, and director of The Parley of Instruments, the choir Psalmody, and the Suffolk Villages Festival.

The Early History of the Viol

The Early History of the Viol | Viole de Gambe | Scoop.it
This book traces the development of the viol from its late medieval Spanish origins to the sixteenth century, when it became the most widely played bowed instrument in western Europe. Ian Woodfield examines the two most important ancestors of the instrument, the Moorish rahab and the vihuela de mano. From these two instruments emerged an early form of viol, the Valencian vihuela de arco, which spread rapidly across the Mediterranean during the papacy of Rodrigo Borgia. The viol was enthusiastically accepted by the d'Este and Gonzaga families and other Italian arbiters before migrating across the Alps and into the rest of Europe. The author discusses all aspects of the viol during its Renaissance hey-day: the growing perfection of viol design at the hands of Italian craftsmen; the gradual evolution of tuning systems; the development of advanced playing techniques and the wide range of music, both solo and consort. The final chapter examines the growth of a viol playing tradition in sixteenth-century England, in particular in the London choir-schools. Dr Woodfield brings iconographic evidence and an interesting approach to this study which will be of interest to musicologists, iconographers, organologists and viol players.

The Music for Viola Bastarda

The Music for Viola Bastarda | Viole de Gambe | Scoop.it
The term "viola bastarda" refers to both an instrument and a style of playing that is one of the crowning achievements of musical mannerism. The Italian repertory for the solo viola da gamba in the 16th and early 17th centuries was largely music played "alla bastarda," an art of performance in which a polyphonic composition is transformed into a single melodic line derived from the original parts and spanning their ranges. Jason Paras has traced the development of the "viola bastarda" and has assembled and transcribed 46 peices in this genre. The music in his collection is a rich and fascinating repertory that is rarely heard today. This anthology is an invitation to present-day players to recreate the improvisation practice of the 16th and 17th centuries in ways not fully disclosed by ornamentation manuals of that time.
