A bit of (early music) history

I haven’t posted any real examples from my musical activity on this blog, but will soon be posting some recordings to my YouTube channel – here’s an interview related to some concerts I did in 2014 with my instrumental ensemble Syntagma and the “Anglistenchor” of the University of Heidelberg. Enjoy! The instrument I’m playing at the beginning is a treble viola da gamba. The instrument that appears around minute 3 is the bass viola da gamba.
