We are around the time of the Regency, at the political crossroads between Louis XIV and Louis XV. The viola da gamba was enjoying it's last hours of glory in France, while the violin was beginning to take centre stage. The Golden Hour, which generally refers to the periods after sunrise and before sunset when the light changes, evokes here those years of convergence, even confrontation, between a viola da gamba in the twilight of it's life and a violin at the dawn of it's soloist destiny.
