Product Description

Along with the seven trio sonatas opus 1 being released simultaneously on Arts, the group that make up Buxtehude's opus 2 are his only compositions that were ever printed. As with the opus 1 sonatas, these pieces call for a treble instrument and a bass instrument as the solo parts, and are organized according to key in such a way that between them they encompass all the major and minor keys of a seven-tone diatonic scale beginning on F, omitting only F minor and B flat minor. The key sequence of opus 2 is B flat major, D major, G minor, C minor, A major, E major and F major.

The form of these pieces is typical of 17th-century German and Italian sonatas in that they are composed of sections of contrasting tempo, meter, and character, but are not divided into discrete movements; the musical material is laid out, elaborated upon, and "discussed" according to the principles of rhetoric, and the entire sonata is perceived by the listener as a unified whole. The solo instruments play together homophonically, banter with each other by tossing motivic fragments back and forth, and take turns playing passages alone.

Dieterich Buxtehude was a German-Danish organist and a highly regarded composer of the baroque period. His organ works comprise a central part of the standard organ repertoire and are frequently performed at recitals and church services. He wrote in a wide variety of vocal and instrumental idioms, and his style strongly influenced many composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach.
