Jordi Savall, viola da gamba

Les voix humaines

Works by Sieur de Machy and Marin Marais

5/28/2014

The “Prélude” by Le Sieur de Machy that opens this section is composed in an older style, which is still indebted to theorbo technique. This contrasts with Marais’s pieces, which are in a modern style. The elements characterising these pieces include expressiveness and technical virtuosity, timbral exploration and the predominance of the melody, demonstrating that the viola da gamba is the instrument that best imitates the human voice.
