Il Concerto delle Viole

This double CD gives a panoramic and exhaustive overview of the repertoire for the so-called Viola Bastarda, a six-string viola da gamba using various different tunings to enable the performance of large scale virtuosic diminutions and passaggi on madrigals and chansons of the mid-16th century.

Master gambist Roberto Gini plays on a reconstruction of an instrument with label Gasparo da Salò and bow after a wonderfully detailed design by Samacchini. He also uses the specific bowing technique with two fingers on the stick of the bow.

About the Viola Bastarda
I also wanted to make this little effort to make diminutions on some songs and madrigals a4 to be played on the viola bastarda, in which discipline you touch all parts, as those intelligent people do that do this for a profession.
Girolamo Dalla Casa 1584.

About the Viola Bastarda
The Viola Bastarda, which is the Queen of all instruments for making passaggi, is an instrument that is neither a tenor nor a bass viol, but it is in between in size. It is called Bastarda because it sometimes plays high, sometimes low, sometimes extremely high, now it plays this part, then an other, this time with new counterpoints, then again with passages in imitation….
Francesco Rognoni 1620.
