vihuelas de mano
Cifras imaginarias

In 1547, Enríquez de Valderrábano published numerous duos (mostly arrangements of vocal polyphony) for vihuelas de mano of various sizes. Ariel Abramovich and Jacob Heringman have followed Valderrábano''s lead, creating a programme of their own polyphonic arrangements for two vihuelas. Intimate and ravishingly beautiful, the delicately-textured clarity of counterpoint comes to the fore in this programme of settings of Josquin, Verdelot, Willaert, Crecquillon and others, performed on tenor and bass vihuelas.

"It is impossible not to marvel at the dexterity of Heringman''s fingerwork and very easy to be convinced by his inspired phrasing and winning sense of spontaneity" Music Week
