Artist: Phillipe Pierlot
Just a super Sunday morning coffee chill accompaniment and my first immersive listen to a bass viol, the Viola da Gamba.
Philippe Pierrot is stunning and the choice of music is like a tour through the history of the instrument’s prominence in the 1600s and beyond.
“Born in Paris, Philippe Pierlot was the last pupil of Joseph Rampal and studied subsequently with Jean-Pierre Rampal and Alain Marion at the Paris Conservatoire, where he was awarded first prizes in flute and in chamber music. He also took first prize at the international competition in Barcelona. In 1976 he became a principal in the Orchestre National de France and has served on a number of international competition juries.”
The Viola da Gamba is a 6-stringed bowed and fretted instrument that first appeared in Spain in the mid to late 15th century and was most popular in the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
