Ensemble Berlin-Prag Jan Dismas Zelenka Trio Sonatas
On both occasions the musicians will perform the Trio Sonatas
by the Czech composer and musician Jan Dismas Zelenka.
At the very least, several manuscripts of concertos and trio sonatas
clearly derive from the collection of Eduard Grell (1800-1887), a Berlin composer, conductor, organist, teacher, and director of the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin from 1853 to 1876.
His programme will focus on the origins and development of Bach's Organ Trio Sonatas
. John Scott Whiteley worked at York Minster from 1975 until 2010 when he retired in order to pursue his freelance career.
Elsewhere there's the Fantasia and Fugue in G minor (shapeless in places), 13 chorale preludes (some not very memorable) and various other pieces.The two trio sonatas
don't really have enough tonal variety, while the Fugue la Gigue needs more of a spring in its step.
Then at 7.30pm Pavlo is joined by the Avisons for Roman Jewels, a programme offering trio sonatas
and Op.5 violin sonatas by Corelli, a Gabrieli cello sonata, Fuga e Ciaconna for archlute by Romano and Pasquini's Toccata in G minor.
* Trio Sonatas
