Review By Christophe Huss,,July 2013

Après avoir joué au luth certaines Suites pour violoncelle et les Sonates et Partitas pour violon, Hopkinson Smith nous revient avec un théorbe dans les trois premières Suites pour violoncelle.

L’artiste s’explique sur les tenants et aboutissants; sur les difficultés aussi. Avant luim Pascal Montheillet avait enregistré les six Suites au théorbe—atrois chez Virgin et trois chez Zig Zag. Fabuleusement brillants et conquérants, les disques de Montheillet ressemblent à un plaidoyer. Avec Hopkinson, aux antipodes, nous sommes dans l’ascèse.
