About this Item
- Fretwork with Iestyn Davies
These stars of the early music world dazzle in a striking range of repertoire spanning four centuries. Included are pieces by Byrd, Purcell and Jenkins from the heyday of the viol. Arias from Handel's "Giulio Cesare" and a vocal concerto by Johann Christoph Bach offer a spotlight for Iestyn Davies. Partnered with what has been called with "the finest viol consort on the planet," Davies conjures breathtaking colors and timbres: a palette perfect for a moment in the sunlit stillness of Ralph Vaughan Williams's "Silent Noon."
