Love can transcend borders in many different ways – in this case, between countries and centuries. The French baroque master Antoine Forqueray and the Berlin church musician Peter Uehling are united by their love of a special instrument, the viola da gamba. In their compositions, both push the possibilities of the viola da gamba to the limit and demand the highest virtuosity from the performer. The third of the viola da gamba lovers is Sarah Perl, who has been making a name for herself for years with her ensemble Wunderkammer. Making the works of the two composers sound sometimes feels like a “high-performance sports competition”, says Sarah Perl. She traces the music with the utmost intensity and elicits a fascinating variety of sounds from the instrument. Photographs by Sabine Wild printed in the booklet open up an additional associative horizon and a new world of experience.
