Three Irish melodies for viola d’amore and cello

Garth Knox brings his passion for the viola d’amore to life here through his talents as a performer, improviser and composer.

Top of the literature for the viola, the variations on “Folies d’Espagne” are inspired by the theme of Folia. Marin Marais practices here an art of variation at the highest level, showing great inventiveness.

In the three Irish melodies, one can only appreciate the ease of Garth Knox whose Irish and Scottish roots enrich an uninhibited dialogue with traditional Celtic music.
