Marin Marais: Suites for Viola da Gamba
Joseph Haydn: Harpsichord Sonatas

Peggie Sampson, Viola da Gamba
Susanne Shapiro, Harpsichord

"Orion and Miss Shapiro have come up with one of the new year's most hauntingly lovely records" - The New Records

"…a clean, nimble technique and a sure sense of style." - Vineyard Gazette

For 50 years Peggie Sampson was a cellist, but in 1960 she purchased a bass viol da gamba while on sabbatical leave. With this purchase, and her belief that the techniques and temperament of the two instruments are not compatible, Samson decided to give up the cello completely.

Susanne Shapiro has an international reputation as a concert artist and inspiring teacher. Trained at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and the Julliard School of Music, she has been on the faculties of the University of Indiana at Bloomington; Pepperdine University in Los Angeles and the University of California, Riverside.
