Bach: The Trio Sonatas (The Organ of Trinity College, Cambridge)
David Newsholme (Organ);
J.S. Bach’s six Trio Sonatas BWV 525–530 occupy a treasured place in the organ repertoire, works whose charm resides not only in their rich variety of compositional style and musical invention but also in the virtuosic demands which they make on the performer. One of the most acclaimed organists of his generation, David Newsholme offers a fresh perspective on these seminal works, re-ordering their sequence and drawing on the unique qualities of the Metzler organ of Trinity College, Cambridge, to create dynamic, spacious performances that allow the listener to fully appreciate Bach’s mastery of melody and supreme use of counterpoint.
