Opera Omnia XV is the latest release in the acclaimed cycle of the complete works of Dieterich Buxtehude from the award winning combination of renowned early music specialist Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque. It is the third and final volume to be devoted to the composer's lesser known but highly rewarding chamber music and includes his opus 2 Trio Sonatas. Ton Koopman is one of the world's foremost early music specialists and directors. His recordings of the complete Bach Cantatas on Challenge Classics received worldwide acclaim. In recent years he has undertaken the daunting task of recording all of the music of his compatriot, the early baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude. As president of the International Dieterich Buxtehude Society, Ton Koopman is considered to be one of the world's leading authorities on his music, and amongst a string of accolades for previous recordings in the series Opera Omnia X was a Gramophone 'Editor's Choice'. Within a period of two years during the last decade of the 17th century the Dutch composer Dieterich Buxtehude published a group of fourteen instrumental chamber sonatas in two sets of seven. The trio sonata had originated in Italy after the middle of the century, but the compositional ideas pursued by Buxtehude are based on the concept of the so-called "stylus fantasticus" which was favoured in keyboard and instrumental ensemble music in North Germany at that time. Personnel: Ton Koopman (harpsichord, organ), Catherine Manson (violin), Paolo Pandolfo (viola da gamba), Mike Fentross (lute)

This is Baroque at its best. Suitable for serious study or, as mentioned, accompaniment to life.
I am disappointed only in that the all of the volumes of Buxtehude's chamber music were not offered as a boxed set. Treasures like this should not be doled out piecemeal.
In any case, this volume has whetted my appetite, and I am likely to return for several more helpings.
