This is the world premiere recording of Tommaso Giordani’s Sonatas for Fortepiano, Viola da Gamba, and Violin, Op. 30, published in 1782. These stunning and virtuosic works are almost unknown today and yet represent some of the finest music composed for the viola da gamba. Dedicated to Viscountess Lavinia Spencer, herself a gamba player, the sonatas deserve wider recognition as wonderfully lyrical, inventive, and forward-looking music of the classical period.

An ensemble of leading early music specialists, the Luchkow-Stadlen-Jarvis Trio specializes in researching, performing, and recording 17th- and 18th-Century repertoire for violin, viola da gamba, and continuo.

The music is performed by Paul Luchkow violin; Sam Stadlen viola da gamba; and Michael Jarvis fortepiano.
