Duo Gordis-Hantaï: Harpsichord and Viola da Gamba

Friday, November 5, 2021 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Campbell Recital Hall


Duo Gordis-Hantaï is comprised of Jérôme Hantaï, viola da gamba, and Lillian Gordis, harpsichord. They have been performing as a duo since 2018, seeking a common sound that lies between the singing inertia of the bow and the percussive attack of the keyboard. Their repertoire centers around the French virtuosos of the viola da gamba — Marin Marais and François Couperin — and the sonatas for viola da gamba and obbligato harpsichord of Johann Sebastian Bach.


  • Marin Marais: Pièces de viole in d minor, Livre II
  • François Couperin: Suite in E minor, Pièces de viole
  • J.S. Bach: English Suite 5, BWV 810
  • J.S. Bach: Sonata III for obbligato harpsichord & viola da gamba, BWV 1029
