Today another non-scientific entry; I’m posting a suite for viola da gamba by the French baroque composer Marin Marais, from his 5th book of pieces for the viol, Suite in g minor.
This is from a live concert many years ago I played with my good friend the Heidelberg lutenist Johannes Vogt, on the theorbo (a bass lute). I play 8 movements from the suite, broken into five files: 1. Prélude; 2. Fantasie-Allemande; 3. Sarabande-Gigue; 4. Tombeau pour Marais le Cadet; 5. Menuet-“la Géorgienne”
These recordings are copyright 2019 by Russ Hodge and Johannes Vogt.
A recording from a concert a few years back, with my good friend the lutenist Johannes Vogt. The instruments are treble viol and lute. The pieces are by the French Renaissance composer Eustache DuCaurroy. Johannes made the arrangements of 2-3 parts for the lute. Enjoy!
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.
