"the galaxy recordings"
For this Hybrid-SACD the internationally acclaimed ensemble "The Spirit of Gambo" recorded Dutch music for viola da gamba from the 17th century: Accompanied by violin and harpsichord they perform compositions from the viola da gamba virtuosos Johan Schenk, Christiaen Herwich and Philippus Hacquart.
The special sound of the gambas, the pieces sparkling with musical versatility and the musicians of The Spirit of Gambo performing with incredible virtuosity form the fascination of this SACD - likewise relaxing and exciting for the listener.
