Signum Records has this week announced the release of British viola da gamba virtuoso, Richard Boothby’s new album: Telemann: Fantasias for Viola da Gamba.
The disc features the 12 newly-discovered solo viol Fantasias of German-Baroque composer Georg Phillip Telemann (1681–1767).
“The viola da gamba already has a huge and fabulous solo repertory … yet here we have 12 new works by a major composer turn up … it’s a wonderful opportunity …” Richard has told The Violin Channel.
“These are very varied and thrilling pieces, which I hope will provide an entertaining and interesting listening experience … each is in a different key and each exploits the viol’s possibilities in different ways – by turns lyrical and virtuosic,” he has said.
