Comments:The "Three Sonatas for Viola da Gamba" are a must for every Bach-fan. Although this recording is instrumented with viola (not -da Gamba), kim kashkashian lets the sound of Bach flow out of the speakers in a way I have seldom heard before. Jarrett is at his best - that does'n mean much, but he accompanies the viola well enough. a great recording.
