Bach, as well as Bach's Fuga inversa a 2 Clavicembali from The Art of the Fugue (BWV 1080/18) and Trio Sonata
G Major (BWV 1038), neither of which were ever performed by Gould.
Lee Holland (flute), Rachel Spencer (violin) and Feargus Egan (cello)will be playing a wide selection of works ranging, historically, from a Corelli Trio Sonata
of the late 17th century to a short item by the German Dehnhard, who was born in 1968.
Directed from the harpsichord by Jeanette Sorrell their encores, a fantasia on American folk tunes, and Sorrell's transformation of Vivaldi's trio sonata
La Folia into an improvised dance jam, hinted at the direction this album takes.
The programme will include Bach's Trio Sonata
The hall's organ was built by a chap called Peter Collins and the programme will include Bach's Trio Sonata
The program also showcases a flute concerto and trio sonata
Bach's Gamba Sonata in G minor is in fact an arrangement of the Trio Sonata
for two flutes and basso continuo in G major that Bach composed around the same time and bears witness to what is perhaps Bach's most important contribution to the development of eighteenth century chamber music: the elevation of the harpsichord from subordinate to equal (sometimes superior), fully written-out musical partner in the duo sonata style.

to keyboard trio.
Another popular Rodewald visitor, Emma Kirkby, appears on disc singing the 9 German Arias and the Gloria of Handel accompanied by the violin cello and organ of London Baroque, who also play a Trio Sonata
. Emma's voice maintains its quality as she enters her 60s, and sounds particularly well against the sparse accompaniment.
Accompanying the six concertos are the Trio Sonata
from Bach's Musical Offering, also somewhat lacking in refinement, and a transcription of the Concerto in G minor, this one for flute and strings.
