Le Blanc, Hubert | Défense de la basse de viole contre les entreprises du violon et les prétentions du violoncelle (1740)

  • Description

Original edition restored by Atelier Philidor.

As spokesman for the partisans of the bass viol, the author attacked the violoncello, “high-pitched, shriek and harsh,... unable to rival the viol’s delicate touch and fine harmony of sound”. This pamphlet enlightens the problems of the instrumental practice of that period.
