Description

Franz Xaver Chwatal was a respected musician in Magdeburg. He published numerous piano works, including variations on the then popular song "Was soll ich in der Fremde thun" for piano for four hands. There is a handwritten version of these variations for viola da gamba and pianoforte from 1828, which we are publishing for the first time in this edition. The editor Thomas Fritzsch writes: Chwatal's virtuoso work opens a door to the sound world of the nineteenth century for viola da gamba players and offers an opportunity to experience the viola da gamba as a romantic instrument.
