About

This 2002 recording reflects both Marin Marais’s and Paolo Pandolfo’s predilection for dance music.

Through a selection of pieces taken from Marais’s Deuxième and Troisième Livres de Pieces de Viole, Pandolfo clearly distinguishes himself from his peers thanks to his light and “balletic” gestures and his profound knowledge of the sound world of the viola da gamba.

An all-star continuo setup including Guido Balestracci, Thomas Boysen and Mitzi Meyerson provides a varied and colourful frame for Pandolfo’s intoxicating performances.
