Saturday night baroque

If you haven’t heard this before, hear it now. It’s by Marin Marais (1656-1728).

This is called Sonnerie de Ste. Geneviéve du Mont de Paris (“Bells of St. Genevieve”). The part for the bass viola da gamba is more intricate than the easily discerned violin part, so the piece rewards repeated hearings.

The musicians are Jordi Savall (bass viol), Fabio Biondi (violin), Pierre Hantaï (harpsichord), and Rolf Lislevand (theorbo).
