The closing disc in London Baroque’s survey of the rise and fall of the trio sonata.
Looking back over this eight-disc series, which opened with three Fantasias composed before 1620 by Orlando Gibbons, it becomes clear how far London Baroque has travelled. The series has taken in both staples of the repertoire and more or less unknown jewels, by composers still revered today or awaiting rediscovery.
Johann Gottlieb Goldberg: Trio Sonata No. 4 in C major
Johann Friedrich Fasch: Trio Sonata in C minor, FWV N:c2
II. Allegro un poco
Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach: Trio Sonata in F major, W. VII/3, B. 12
III. Tempo di Minuetto
Johann Gottlieb Graun: Trio in B flat major
III. Allegro non troppo
Georg Philipp Telemann: Trio in G major, TWV 42:G10
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: Trio Sonata in B flat major, Wq. 158, H. 584
II. Largo con sordini
“London Baroque's trio sonata tour revisits Germany. Breewzy Graun and suave Telemann complement more modern specimens by the Bach brothers. Stylish playing, ravishingly recorded.”

“with the exception of Goldberg's sonata these compositions are not that well-known and that makes this disc a worthwhile addition to the discography.
That is even more the case in consideration of the performances. London Baroque is one of the older ensembles in the world of historical performance practice. It is still going strong, and it is remarkable how it has kept its high standard over so many years.”
