Susanne Heinrich, viola da Gamba.
Having acquired already the complete Naxos recordings "And very good they are", I thought there was no harm in acquiring yet another set of this music, incomplete as it is. For Susanne Heinrich is a gifted musician, and her gamba has a beautiful tone, expertly captured by this recording. These works were never meant for public performance, and frankly it would not hold your attention there for long. This is meant for home concerts, intimate surroundings, with a glass of malt in your hand, and some woodfire in the background. A cozy surrounding is what this music needs. Hume wrote inventive music, not run of the mill, and every piece tells a different story. A fascinating journey it is, but one that could put you vastly to sleep.
