Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    71:42
The viola da gamba music of Marin Marais represents a treasure trove of expressive and technical possibilities for Paolo Pandolfo, whose style of playing is so perfectly suited to this music: meticulous and sensitive, with a technical strength that allows him to demonstrate the instrument’s versatility with a rare freedom. To reflect the transition effected by Marais in 1689, from the gamba being a solo instrument to operating within a chamber ensemble, Pandolfo has chosen to record works for one or two gambas, with or without continuo support, including the rarely recorded set of variations Sujet Diversitez. Pandolfo is joined by Amélie Chemin on second viola da gamba, Thomas Boysen on theorbo and Baroque guitar and harpsichordist Markus Hünninger.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
