The Angel and the Devil

Virtuoso music for viola da gamba and harpsichord by two rivals from the reign of Louis XIV - Marin Marais, whose playing was compared to that of an angel, and Antoine Forqueray, who gained a reputation as a musical devil; with the added bonus and spice of music by viol virtuosi Carl Friedrich Abel and Gottfried Finger.

 

Petr Wagner viola da gamba
Shalev Ad-El harpsichord

 

Czech viol soloist Petr Wagner is one of the great luminaries of Eastern Europe's early music scene, directing his own ensembles and orchestra in Prague as well as collaborating regularly with leading ensembles in Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and Scandinavia, and appearing at all the major European festivals.

Prize-winning Israeli Shalev Ad-El is one of Europe's most sought-after harpsichord soloists and continuo players, recording more than 30 CDs and giving recitals all over the world.
