One of my favourite CD's; some of the most wonderful music on earth and the performance is exquisite. I fancy Bach's trio sonatas were originally written as organ solos and having heard them that way I can only say how thankful I am for these transcriptions. I also have the sonatas played on guitar and harpsichord, that is pleasant but this album by London Baroque is so stunning. I know I'll never tire of it and I play it often.

Please note: This is a review of the recording by The Purcell Quartet Bach: Trio Sonatas BWV525-530. Amazon have mistakenly added it to the page for London Baroque's recording, too, where it doesn't apply.

This is an absolute cracker of a CD, I think. The Purcell Quartet have been making wonderful, highly acclaimed recordings for well over a quarter of a century now. This one is exceptionally good even by their own enormously high standard.

The works are transcriptions of six of Bach's Organ Sonatas (BWV525-530 to be precise) by Richard Boothby, the ensemble's excellent viola da gamba player. He has made a really good job of bringing these wonderful pieces to a wider audience (including me, as I'm not much of a fan of organ music). This is, of course, very much in Bach's own idiom - he was an inveterate arranger and recycler and a couple of the movements from these sonatas appear in his cantatas and concertos. Boothby's transcriptions are ingenious and varied, which maintains one's interest throughout while keeping the music unmistakably Bach. It is exemplary work and I think Bach would thoroughly have approved.

The Purcell Quartet play together with a delightful empathy both with the music and each other, and the music absolutely glows. The performances are simply terrific. It has been sheer pleasure to me to find unfamiliar and wonderful works by Bach played so well.

I really don't know what more to say other than that this has become one of my very favourite Bach discs in a pretty extensive collection. The recorded sound is excellent and the notes extremely interesting. It's an outstanding disc all round and very warmly recommended.

I have heard the Trio Sonatas for organ many times, but this quartet version is very beautiful and of the highest quality.

Delightful. 17 Feb 2013
By Wayne Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My first acquaintance with J.S. Bach's Six Trio Sonatas (BWV 525-530) was a vinyl recording by E. Power Biggs, from among his many recordings of Bach on the Flentrop organ at Harvard. I enjoyed the music so much I added his recording of the same works on pedal harpsichord. (Only the pedal harpsichord recording has been re-released on CD -- Bach: The Six Trio Sonatas -- at this writing, but I keep hoping for the first recording ... ) My point is that I am a long-time fan of these works.

This recording is utterly delightful. The trio voices of the two violins and viol de gamba dance wonderfully with one another, and the harpsichord continuo fills nicely, complimenting but never obscurring the lines of melody and countermelody. The tempos are (to me) perfect; the fast movements are lively but never hurried, the slower movements a smooth and sweet but never drag.

For fans of Bach, this is a great addition to the collection. For those who are, be careful ... you might become one after this. Seriously.
