CPE Bach: 3 Sonatas for Viola da Gamba

Johanna Rose (viola da gamba), Javier Núñez (harpsichord)

Rubicon 2017


Johanna Rose's debut album is OUT! The album features the music of C.P.E. Bach for Viola da Gamba!

Composed during his time at the court of Frederick the Great in Berlin, Bach’s sonatas provided the court gambist with ample opportunities to display both virtuosity and sensitivity. The viola da gamba was going out of fashion when the forward-looking C.P.E. Bach composed these works, however, they represent some of the finest and most expressive music in the instrument’s repertoire.
