The Complete da Gamba Sonatas with William Chapman Nyaho

Henderson and Nyaho met in early 2015 when they performed Bach’s G Major Sonata for Viola da Gamba & Harpsichord on modern cello & piano for Seattle’s thriving Bach in the Subways. Sparking an impassioned musical collaboration and eager to delve deeper into this ingenious body of work, they debuted the Complete da Gamba Sonatas in Seattle in December of 2015. The two repeated their performance in New York in early 2016 and sold out the program later that year at Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. In 2017 the private salon recital series Hereford Arts presented the da Gamba Sonatas in New York.



From the Audience

“Dale played with total commitment, a warm sound, lyrical musicality, and virtually flawless intonation. … Nyaho is a marvel of imaginative yet unexaggerated phrasing and nuance, and plays with an effortless… technical facility.” Eric Edberg
