This CD unites the composers CPE Bach and Carl Friedrich Abel in a distinctive programme combining viola da gamba and fortepiano.
The London Abel and the Berlin Bach marked the last flowering period of the viola da gamba. Rebeka Rusó studied viola da gamba with Wieland Kuijken at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels and with Paolo Pandolfo at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, and is currently one of the best known gamba players of her generation. She teaches at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and the Conservatory in Strasbourg. Sebastian Wienand studied harpsichord and fortepiano at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He is currently in great demand as a soloist, chamber music partner and continuo harpsichordist and has performed with renowned ensembles at national and international festivals. For a number of years now, he has cooperated regularly in opera productions as the musical assistant of René Jacobs.
