Yet another viola d'amore release. Dorothea Jappe plays on five different original viole d'amore.
From the booklet:
In spite of its short life and geographic limitations, the viola d'amore's role among the baroque string instruments is characterized by independance and individuality. It is not recorded before 1680, and has all but disappeared by 1800. Although origin and development show influences from England and Italy, the viola d'amore really flourished only in Germany.
... "Sweet, silvery, pleasing" are the commonest attributes accorded the instrument by baroque authors. ...
... It was only from the beginning of the 18th century that in South Germany the instrument began to evolve - whether independantly or as a further development is not known - to the state we today regard as typical: 6-7 playing strings of gut and an equal number of steel sympathetic strings underneath, "which are neither stopped nor bowed, but are there to reinforce and propagate the sound of the strings above", as Leopod Mozart says in his 'Violinschule' of 1756.
