In the Mode: July 20, 2014
Music by French composer Marin Marais next time on In the Mode. We’ll hear gambist Jordi Savall and his fabulous group of musicians play music from Marais’ Suitte d’un Gout Etranger Suite in a foreign style--a unique collection of some odd pieces. By “foreign” Marais does not necessarily mean from outside of France, but foreign to the usual way of playing the viola da gamba.
