Format: Audio CD
Bach's 6 trio sonatas have survived only in their form for the organ,however modern scholarship is in little doubt that the organ version is a transcription and that they were originally scored for a chamber ensemble consisting of violin and wind instrument or 2 violins plus bass continuo.The Brook Street Band have opted for the latter and are not the first to record these wonderful compositions in this manner.Both the Purcell Quartet and London Baroque have long since had their recordings on the market and both to critical acclaim.

So how does this new account stand up to the others? - Very well indeed and arguably it's the finest yet.The Brook Street Band are more extrovert than the Purcell Quartet but a fraction less so than London Baroque -in other words they occupy a middle ground between the other two versions and they play with remarkable intonation.
Tempo's are sprightly but not pressed too hard and the sound recording is of the highest standard.

If you already own the Purcell Quartet or London Baroque accounts then that's fine but for only a very modest cost i thoroughly recommend this newer version because if forced to choose only one then it's the Brook Street Band i would go for.

Another splendid and incisive disc by this group which specialises in the Baroque.
Handel lived in Brook St. Mayfair.
Although the works were weitten for (and are usually performed on) the organ I would commend this disc to all who appreciate Bach played by a Chamber Ensemble.
