Product Description


technical comment


  • The wealth of secular and sacred music Bach produced in his lifetime stands in stark contrast to the dearth of existing (or surviving) music for chamber ensemble. This deficit has been addressed by the English early instrument ensemble Florilegium with this disc from Channel Classics featuring the group's charming and colorful arrangements of the master's six organ Trio Sonatas. Adapting these pieces for varying combinations of instruments fits comfortably within the canon when one considers Bach's own interest in transferring styles and idioms from other works to a solo or group of instruments, and vice-versa, something which he explored particularly during his years of employment at the ducal court in Weimar.
