      Bach: Viola da gamba & Harpsichord Sonata No 3 in G minor, BWV 1029 (15:48)

      Shirley Hunt, viola da gamba; Ian Pritchard, harpsichord

      This is the inaugural recording in an ambitious three-part series by cellist and viola da gamba player Shirley Hunt. It’s the first recording series ever to feature Bach’s cello suites and viola da gamba sonatas side-by-side, recorded by the same artist. Hunt explains, “After performing an all-Bach recital at the Berkeley Early Music Festival in 2012, I knew I wanted to deepen my experience with these pieces even further. I got my wish, because later that year I was invited to be an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre, where I lived and breathed this music nonstop for two months before the recording sessions.”
