Product Notes

• Though his output was modest, German composer August

Kühnel (1645 - ca.1700) was nonetheless the most important

master of the bass viol in Germany in his day.

• Most of Kühnel's compositions are in manuscript form.

• The only exceptions are his Sonate ò Partite ad una ò due

viole da gamba, con il basso continuo, (sonatas or partitas

for one or two viols with continuo) which are performed by

Consort Les Voix humaines on this new ATMA recording.

• Originally dedicated to Kühnel's employer, this collection

of pieces would have been appropriate either for princely

dining rooms or amateur gatherings.

• The collection's title is also surprising, suggesting that each

piece may be considered either a sonata or a partita.

• With it's demands that the viol excel both in playing melody

and harmony, Kühnel's collection magnificently blends

the Italian, French, and German styles, and shows that the

composer was an elegant and sensitive virtuoso.
