Viola Da Gamba
Originally from Alicante, the viola da gambist and cellist, Fernando Marín has specialized in early bowed instruments, historical interpretation and chamber music.
He has researched the origins, methods of playing and repertoire of these instruments, developing a very unique technique of accompanying the voice in his duo Cantar alla Viola. In addition to numerous Duo CDs, he has released two solo CDs.
His first solo CD, eVIOLution, traces the origins of the viola da gamba, while the second CD, sCORDAtura, focuses on historical strings and tunings. He has also published articles on musical rhetoric, gut strings, ornamentation and improvisation.
