Ralph Rousseau

TTK 0043 CD

 19,95

For the small scene of viola da gamba players, 2015 has been an unforgettable year. The most important discovery in years was revealed: in an archive in the German city of Osnabrück, a full copy surfaced of the long-lost Fantasias for viola da gamba solo by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). Each page had one. And that, with Telemann’s memorial year coming up, the anniversary where he would finally gain the wide acknowledgement he deserves. In 2017, it would have been 250 years since the Magdeburg-born composer passed away.

“Passionate folk dances are next to humble lamentations and inventive polyphony.” ★★★★☆

Frits van der Waa, de Volkskrant

“Telemann never gets boring, even for a single moment. Definitely also thanks to Rousseau, who lets his six-string [viola da] gamba by Georg Aman sing and speak, with expressive extremes without hunting for effects, as well as a rhetorical expressive power without any artificial allures.”

Eddie Vetter, Klassieke Zaken

“[Ralph Rousseau] follows the (excellent!) footsteps of other viola da gamba players, but adds more to his interpretation’s dance-like character […] aided by the brilliant recording in TRPTK style.”

Aart van der Wal, Opus Klassiek
