Gamba players have a healthy respect for Franois Couperin's 'Pices de Viole'; they are not pieces to be casually included in one's repertoire. Couperin himself was not a gamba player, and he wrote these impressive suites without realizing the technical consequences of his writing; sometimes it takes the performer a long time to find an adequate fingering or bowing. On this fantastic audiophile album, Mieneke van der Velden pulls off these difficulties masterfully, imbuing the music with her velvety string tone, and making for a simply wonderful listen.
