Gerald Trimble

 

 

Gerald Trimble is at the forefront of innovation on the viola da gamba, a versatile bowed, fretted instrument with ancient roots in Moorish Spain and Renaissance and Baroque Europe. As much a jazz or rock improvisor as an interpreter of ancient music, Trimble sails the viola da gamba out of its accepted role in historical performance and into a much deserved role as a world instrument. His new CD, Uncharted: A Viola da Gamba Adventure, from MSR Classics, chronicles his musical voyages and has received praise in the US and Europe.
