Funny to hear this :D
I regularly play the 3 Gamba Sonatas with my viola partner, and while the third is by and large our favourite, we most always skip the slow movement as we find it rather boring and don't quite know what to make of it. I am reluctant to say any Bach piece is boring, but this one comes close...
But of course you make the best possible case for it. You are as good an accompanist as you are a soloist and composer. Did you record the outer movements of this Sonata as well ? The first movement always reminds me irresistably of the Brandenburg Concerti.

Really good again and your viola partner is also very competent. He keeps the voice perfect for almost all of the time and the timing works also very well.

Oh my god, that's incredibly beautiful, Setrak! And the instruments are so balanced in tone and volume. Chris, I guess like I will reconsider the Loure, you might consider not skipping this movement in the future :)
But it was not a Viola da Gamba, right? I once heard a recording, and it sounded very different (and not as good as this one). In fact, some 10 years ago, I played the first mv of one the Gamba sonatas (don't remember which) with a friend who was playing it on a double bass!

Actually, last time my viola partner suggested we'd do it again, and I said no :oops:
Seems I am too fond of the outer movements, and always eager to move on to the Brahms sonatas which are the highlight of the session. One has to make choices...
