Bartłomiej Pȩkiel is not someone who gets out much. But it’s actually gorgeous music, and it was a great pleasure to record these pieces with The Sixteen under Eamonn Dougan. There are just a few of the larger works with viol parts, and it’s that wonderful kind of North German style of writing where small bass viols are used almost like violas.
Also, it was Gramophone Magazine’s Choice for the month of September! Have a listen here.
