Bach: Trio Sonatas for Organ - Robert Quinney
Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted with this recording by one of The Sixteen Orchestra’s principal members - organist Robert Quinney. Recorded at The Queen’s College, Oxford, on the beautiful Frobenius Organ (one of the most notable instruments of its kind in the country), the Trio Sonatas are among Bach's most popular and appealing organ works. Compiled in the composer’s later years, perhaps as studies for his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann, the Trio Sonatas are a unique set of works in the organ repertory.
“Quinney embraces the transparency of Bach's trios with an ear for their variety, sparkle and cogency. The Frobenius organ at Queen's College, Oxford, provides him with an enticing palette of sounds, while its mechanical security allows Quinney's lucid and carefully articulation to emerge without compromise.”
