The Stockholm Sonatas II: Recueil de pièces pour la Viola d'Amour, part 1.
Thomas Georgi, viola d'amore. BIS-CD-1555. 2007 DDD.
Thomas Georgi, member of the Tafelmusik-Ensemble, is well-known for his recordings with the Viola d'amore, both for the pieces for Viola d'amore solo, as well as for the first CD with the Ariosti Lezioni and Sonatas (see further below on this page). His latest CD has also been positively received. Moore (in American Record Guide, Nov/Dec 2007) wrote amongst others things: "This is very fine music, superbly played by all the musicians.", "Georgi turns his attention to the art of embellishment ... and the resulting invention is stunning to hear. In both discs the playing brims with grace, unity, assurance, and great beauty." and "My hearty recommendation is to get both discs."
The second CD of the Stockholm Sonatas contains Sonatas 8 to 14 arranged for viola d'amore, theorbo, archlute, baroque guitar, and violoncello.
Georgi has also just released the first part of the sheet music for Ariosti's works. For details please see the music edition page.
