Schenck, Scherzi musicali, suites VI and VII
The Dutch viola da gamba virtuoso and composer Johan Schenck is well known to all gamba players. His voluminous opus Scherzi musicali was published 1698 by Roger in Amsterdam. It makes full use of the bass viols range and chord possibilities. Güntersberg practical edition follows the original musical text as far as possible, but it offers - compared to the original - a view of both parts in score form, a better legibility, and a separate, completely worked out score containing the realization of the figured bass, since the original figuring is at times incomplete and the intended placement of the figures often unclear.
Güntersberg edition is divided into seven individual volumes.
Editor: Günter and Leonore von Zadow.
Introduction: Johannes Boer.
Continuo realization: Dankwart von Zadow.
