COR16095 J.S. Bach: Trio Sonatas for Organ

Organ Works Volume  I

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to release a brand new 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.

Robert Quinney

'Alongside his impeccable performances, Quinney’s greatest achievement is to produce music-making which really communicates itself to the listener.' Gramophone

'The eloquently expressed accompanying notes by the performer himself beautifully complement an excellent recording, which is to be thoroughly recomended.'  International Record Review

'Perfect they may be, but intimate, too, the disc a pure unfolding of pleasure.' The Times
