After last year’s programme dedicated to the music of the great Marain Marais and his teacher, Sainte-Colombe, we are moving forward in time to explore the viol music of the next generation! Marais’ son Roland grew up under the shadow of his famous father, but produced hauntingly melodic suites of his own. His contemporary, Louis de Caix d’Hervelois, was likewise a pupil of Marais’, but his music shows the beginnings of an Italian twist – a fusion of styles taken to extreme by the notorious and virtuosic Antoine Forqueray. An excursion into the later history of the viol in France, introduced with a reference back in time to Monsieur Sainte-Colombe, the father of the French viol school.
