Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych

Bowed strings from ages past, plus sonatas by Boccherini, Vitali and Corelli feature today as Vlad counts down to Early Music Day 2017.

Coming up on Vox Nostra on Sunday 19th February.
 



Modern symphony orchestras and period ensembles rely on the string family to provide the core of their familiar sound and texture. But not all strings were created equal: when the string instruments we recognise today were first developed centuries ago, they were members of either the violin or the viola da gamba family.

On this Sunday's programme, Vlad navigates the universe of early string instruments, with a primer to the many members of both branches of these two bowed-instrument clans. You'll find out about spikeless cellos, megasized viola da gambas, bowed instruments that play chords or resonate sympathetically, and gut-strung-everything.

There's plenty of evidence for the string theory on this week's Vox Nostra, complete with the music of string-playing composers Giovanni Battista Vitali (violone), Luigi Boccherini (a cellist), and Arcangelo Corelli (violinist), plus a delightful Sunday Sonata that brings us back to the origins of the sonata itself.
