…ops! On Viola di Spala!
A note from J. S. Bach’s colleague and cousin
Bartolomeo Bismantova, Ferrara 1694
From J. F. B. C. Majer, 1741
And on continuo playing
Right or wrong… depending on what we want to see! But for sure all these personalities were no fools!
Treatises that mention Violoncello da Spalla, but we’d prefer to hide them under the carpet
