Early music for two violas da gamba

Enjoy a mid-winter concert featuring the warm- hearted viola da gamba. Tina Chancey and Amy Domingues present A Merry Conceit: Music for two Viols. The early violin was first used in dance bands; anyone with breeding played the viol. Similar to a bowed guitar, the viol has six strings and frets; it's held on the legs without an end pin and bowed underhand. There's a wealth of virtuosic 16th-18th century music for viols; Amy and Tina's hour-long program features duets and solos by Tobias Hume, M. de Ste. Colombe, Georg Philip Telemann, Carl Friedrich Abel and August Kuhnel.
