Reviews [performances on treble viol]
Washington Post, Sept. 28, 2014 [“The outstanding contributions of the evening were from Loren Ludwig on treble viol, played with impeccable intonation and cleanness of tone. An arrangement of Dowland’s “Queen’s Alman,” adapted from a densely florid keyboard version by Byrd, offered the perfect vehicle for Ludwig’s fluid fret hand.”]
Chestnut Hill Local, Jan. 25, 2013 [“The performances given Schop’s “Lachrimae Paven” and Buxtehude’s “Singet dem Hern” were especially noteworthy for Ludwig’s playing a treble viola da gamba. Its higher range, more like that of a modern viola, afforded him many opportunities for expressive phrasing.”]
