Lachrimae-Tango for viols & bandoneon

In this project the viola da gamba links up with the bandoneon: the 17th and 20th centuries tell their stories in turn and each in its own original language and form, before finally coming together in the tonal language of the 21st century in a contemporary composition, opening up new dimensions of the age-old human theme of passion.
