Trio sonatas were as popular in Bach's time as string quartets during Mozart's day. This program consists of all of Johann Sebastian's sonatas originally scored for chamber ensemble, as well two transcriptions of his trio sonatas originally for organ.
Normally trio sonatas consist of two treble instruments, a cello/gamba, and organ/harpsichord, but this program features three treble instruments (recorder, oboe, and violin) which you will hear in every combination over the course of the evening.
Don't miss this rich and varied program of works for the Baroque period's favorite chamber ensemble!
