Description
Performed by French viola d'amore virtuoso and scholar Jean-Philippe Vasseur, this program spans the baroque through late Romantic eras, with the Concertos for Viola d'Amore nos. 1 and 2 in D Major by Carl Stamitz; Partita VII from Harmonia Artificiosa–ariosa for two violas d'amore and continuo by Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber; Pièce caractéristique for viola d'amore and strings by Léon Pillaut; and Duo avec basse by Louis-Toussaint Milandre. The viola d'amore is a bowed instrument with a sweet, melancholy sound that appeared in Europe at the end of the 17th century. Its sound hole has the shape of a "flaming sword," and it usually has a carved head (the most common one being a blindfolded cupid). Unlike the viol family, it does not have frets. Most violas d'amore have 14 strings—seven playing strings and seven resonating or sympathetic strings.
