  • Friends Meeting House 5 Longfellow Park Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States

The viola da gamba, an instrument adored by Louis XIV for its uncanny ability to resemble the human voice, has enjoyed a great revival on the concert stage over the past few decades. As part of the celebrations of the 350th anniversary of F. Couperin’s birth, Sarasa presents a delectable program of solo works for viola da gamba and its eventual usurper, the Baroque cello. Introducing the profound Japanese gambist, Reiko Ichise.

Music by Couperin, Marais, Telemann, Carl Friedrich Abel, JS Bach and Boismortier
