Music by famous gamba players and cellists

Three great musical personalities get together once every so often to share in their shared love: French Baroque. In this era the cello was starting to gain popularity compared to the viola da gamba. Marin Marais and Antoine Forqueray remained well-known as gamba players, but Jean-Baptiste Barrière developed from a gamba player into a travelling cello soloist and composed countless cello sonatas.
