Vasseur takes us back to a 17th century master of violin composition, Heinrich Biber, whose Passagaglia was the terminus of a set of 15 virtuosic sonatas for violin and basso continuo. Vasseur changes the key in his transcription for solo viola, but otherwise adheres faithfully to the composer's intentions. Performance notes on 17th century practice are included. For advanced violists.
Biber, H. I. F.
