More Info:

Known for it's daring and youthful performances, the ensemble Les Barocudas makes it's ATMA Classique recording debut with La Peste, a musical journey that explores the theme of the plague. The members of the Montreal-based trio, Marie Nadeau-Tremblay, Ryan Gallagher (viola da gamba), and Nathan Mondry, have compiled a program in which each piece corresponds with an episode or aspect of this 17th century pandemic. All of the composers selected for this album - Schmelzer, Castello, Fontana, Pandolfi, Rossi, Farina - were violinists, and all of them were affected by the plague, in some cases, fatally.
