Mélisande Corriveau and Eric Milnes: Bach on the pardessus de viole
Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque Music
A world-renowned specialist of the pardessus de viole, a clear-voiced instrument with a charming touch of fragility, Mélisande Corriveau performs works by the great Bach which, at the pardessus with its quality of transparency, admirably serves the composer’s polyphonic discourse.
