Empire Viols – Rhine Journey: German Music for Viols and Harpsichord
Empire Viols explores the Rhine through haunting, tuneful music of German composers before Bach. The tour includes variations by virtuoso gambist August Kühnel and two Rhine pieces; renowned gambist Johannes Schenck’s “Le nymphe di Rheno” and Johann Jakob Froberger’s travelogue, “Le passage du Rhin.” Transcriptions of Bach complete the trip.
Martha McGaughey, Carlene Stober ~ viols
Arthur Haas ~ harpsichord
Founded in 1994, Empire Viols focuses on the rich repertoire for two viols and harpsichord, expanding it with adventurous transcriptions of music originally for other instruments. The ensemble performs in the Northeast United States and beyond and was featured on composer Debra Kaye’s debut CD, “And So It Begins.”
