We are very happy to announce the release of our first album: J.S. Bach The Sonatas for viola (da gamba) and harpsichord BWV 1027-1029. The album was released in February 2021 on Channel Classics Records. Find more information about the album here.
“Une vision particulièrement convaincante, où les deux musiciennes se distinguent dans leur dialogue mutuelle, leur geste ample et leur respiration fluide, rappelant par moment l’antique version de Wieland Kuijken et Gustav Leonhardt, aux phrasés princiers ... Magnifique en tout cas, l’écoute de cette nouvelle parution Channel reste fortement recommandée.” Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz
“The first thing immediately perceived is the constant dialogue between the two instruments, as if they were three (…) creating a continuous and close dialogue of incredible beauty.”
– Umbriajournal, October 2019
The Danish-Italian duo consisting of Marie Stockmarr Becker on baroque viola and Ilaria Macedonio on harpsichord was formed in 2013, when the two musicians studied early music at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. Since then, they have played together both as a duo and in several baroque orchestras and ensembles. As a duo they performed in Denmark – among others in Onsdagskoncerterne and in the Early Monday concert series – and in Umbria, Italy. In february 2020 they recorded J.S. Bach’s three sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord – a project supported by Augustinus Fonden.
