From the Library: Deep Strings

Today’s pro­gram fea­tures the deep-voiced stringed instru­ments, the cel­lo and vio­la da gam­ba. The vio­la da gam­ba has roots in the 15th-cen­tu­ry vihuela, while the cel­lo devel­oped dur­ing the 16th from the bass vio­lin. Includ­ed are both clas­si­cal and folk styles, and soloists, cham­ber groups, and orches­tral set­tings.
