  • Description

    It was Bach himself who founded the long tradition of transcribing his own music for varying instrumental grouping. The Six Trio Sonatas, BWV525-530, are here adapted to involve a wide rage of instrumental colours, with the five 'melody' instruments (two violins, viola, oboe, and obe d'amore) being paired in the manner most suited to each particular Sonata and being complemented by a similarly varied continuo. Originally written as tutorial pieces for his son's organ lessons, the Trio Sonatas are true masterpieces, each providing ample opportunity for virtuoso playing and the enjoyment of Bach's melodic genius.
