Whatever it takes, so long as it sounds remarkable. A viola da gamba composition played on a viola da braccia, or Bratsche in German. Such feats are commonplace for Antoine Tamestit, and here he overcomes the challenge with the same sense of indulgence that we have come to expect. In fact, the musician is an expert in adapting baroque classics. Tamestit transcribes compositions with tactfulness and intelligence, like in his two Suites for Solo Cello by Jean-Sébastien Bach. This time, the viola player is accompanied by his accomplice Masato Suzuki on harpsichord for the recording of the Three Sonatas for viola da gamba, BMV 1027-1029. Playing the music we like on an instrument we love, isn’t that what taking pleasure in music is about? There are incidentally several versions of the Sonata in G major, BMV 1027: a trio sonata of two transverse flutes and perhaps even an organ. So why not the viola? The record contains three scores in reverse order to their catalogue numbers. It’s a pleasure to hear the Vivace under the viola players agile fingers and ductile phrasing. The instrument’s grain is warmly transferred through his bow thanks to his natural approach to playing. The balance between the two musicians is a delight, particularly in the arrangement of the aria “Ergiesse dich reichlich” of the cantata Wo sol ich flihen hin, a pleasant surprise that is slipped in between sonatas BMV 1029 and 1028. The melody is fluidly transferred between the players and demonstrates the complexity of the composition’s exceptional contrasts. Of course, the viola provides a larger ambitus with seven strings and its ability to play deeper notes. Tamestit and Suzuki deliver here a disarmingly graceful rendition that lacks no gravity. © Elsa Siffert/Qobuz

A fiery partnership. The brainchild of Antoine Tamestit, this recording stems from a long-standing collaboration with his recital partner, Jörg Widmann. Over the course of his new viola concerto, Widmann the composer lets his soloist move freely about the stage, producing fresh orchestral colours within a novel structure: combining humour with earnestness, ferocity with delicacy, Widmann’s unfailing sense of theatre serves to highlight the work’s haunting beauty. Whether embedded in the orchestral fabric or exploring the more intimate pieces on this programme, the violist comes out a hero, hands down! © harmonia mundi

It's hard to imagine how anything could have been improved upon with this Brahms recital from three of Harmonia Mundi's most sensitive and interesting artists. The programming alone is a work of art: the idea of pairing the viola versions of Brahms's two autumnal Op. 120 Clarinet Sonatas inspired by Meiningen Orchestra clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld, with three further softly intimate works of his showcasing the viola's similarities with the human voice – viola and piano arrangements of Nachtigall from the six Op. 97 Songs (extra resonant, when Brahms described Mühlfeld as the nightingale of the orchestra) and the famous Op. 49 Wiegenlied, followed by the Op. 91 Zwei Gesänge for Voice, Viola and Piano. Then there's the instruments, because for Tamestit and Tiberghien these are just as important to the music's alchemy as the abilities of the performers, and their quest to find the perfect match for the penetrating, multi-shaded tones of Tamestit's Stradivarius viola eventually led them to an 1899 Bechstein piano. The result was two instruments capable of a range of colours and roundness of sound across all registers and through even the most virtuosic of passages; and that's precisely what you hear across the resultant lyrically tender, natural-feeling readings, because beyond the hand in glove chamber partnering you're hearing, their respective tones are both alive with colouristic complexities and verily glowing. Then, beyond being simply delicious, the vocal quality Tamestit draws out from the famous Wiegenlied melody serves as the perfect overture to the programme's Zwei Gesänge – shaped icing on the cake – yet another perfect combination, Tamestit's lines lovingly encircling and dovetailing with Goerne's own richly warm, gentle baritone, the polished Teldex Studio engineering casting them on satisfyingly equal footings with each other, with the piano just slightly behind. In short, absolutely gorgeous. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

Here the diva is the viola! How did the viola move from the status of ‘dramatic contralto among instrumental voices’ (to quote the critic Henri Blanchard) to ‘a character of nobility and languor’, according to Georg Kastner’s treatise on instrumentation (1837)? Going well beyond mere historical interest, this album answers the question by unveiling the charms of a repertory that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It tells the story of an instrument that at last emerged from the violin’s shadow thanks to immense virtuosos; and now the talent of two great musicians of our time brings back to life these pieces which offer much more than the exquisite languors of bel canto. The diva is the viola; its servant is named Antoine Tamestit. (Text from harmonia mundi label)
