Product Description

Product Description

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing a brand new recording by one of The Sixteen Orchestras principal members - organist Robert Quinney. Recorded at The Queens College, Oxford, on the beautiful Frobenius Organ (one of the most notable instruments of its kind in the country), the Trio Sonatas are among Bach's most popular and appealing organ works. Complied in the composers later years, perhaps as studies for his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann, the Trio Sonatas are a unique set of works in the organ repertory. Bach transferred to the organ the Italian trio sonata with its two treble voices and bass continuo; for the organ works, Bach uses right hand, left hand, and pedal. Robert Quinney is Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey and played at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April. In addition to his daily work at the Abbey, he maintains a busy freelance schedule as a soloist and ensemble player, and is also Director of Oundle for Organists, whose residential courses offer inspiring tuition for young organists. His double compact disc The Grand Organ of Westminster Cathedral, recorded in 2004, was Instrumental Disc of the Month in BBC Music, earned a 5-star review in the French journal Diapason, and was an Editors Choice in Gramophone.

Review

The sound is fluting ,crystaline,limpid,yet not without power and profundity.Adapting the Italian chamber-music genre,the trio sonatas are each in three movements,yet with an individual cast.Perfect they may be,but intimate,too,the disc a pure unfolding of pleasure. --The Times,24/09/11

Robert Quinney embraces the transparency of Bach's trio with an ear for their variety,sparkle and cogency.The Frobenius organ at Queen's College,Oxford,provides him with enticing palette of sounds,while its mechanical security allows Quinney's lucid and carefully considered articulation to emerge without compromise. Performance **** Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine,Christmas'11

Two of the most striking aspects of Quinney's performances throughout this disc are clarity of line and careful articulation. ...an excellent recording, which is thoroughly recommended. --IRR,Dec'11

Quinney delivers finger-and foot-perfect performances. EDITORS CHOICE --Gramophone,Jan'12

Faultless articulation, elegent ornamentation and well-chosen tempi provide an altogether sunny, life-enhansing listen. A marker, surely, for the rest of the series. ***** --Choir and Organ,Nov/Dec'11

Critics Choice 2012 --Gramophone,Christmas '12

Robert Quinney is one of our top young organists, and he does not disappoint here. This disc of rarely performed Bach works (I've not seen them on disc or in concert programmes recently) is a delightful reminder of how diverse are Bach's organ works, and how good they can sound when played well on an appropriate instrument. The registrations here are sensitive, the articulation precise, and it is a real pleasure to sit back and enjoy these works.

The complete JS Bach Trio Sonatas for organ, all on one CD. Robert Quinney plays them beautifully in the warm acoustic of Queen's College Chapel, Oxford.
The recording is exceptional. The "Coro" engineers have captured the Frobenius organ in close but wonderfully clear sound, with not a trace of harshness;
also thanks to the inspired registrations of Robert Quinney. A "must hear" for all Bach organ lovers!
