Pardessus de Viole

The pardessus de viole first appeared in 18th-century Parisian salons and was destined to be played by ladies of the nobility. Dubbed the “woman’s violin”, it was endowed with a refined, elegant repertoire. This programme is derived from the prize-winning eponymous album (2016 Opus Prize), and provides a unique opportunity to discover a delicate instrument and its intimate music.
