J.S. Bach’s six Trio Sonatas BWV 525–530 occupy a treasured place in theorgan repertoire, works whose charm resides not only in their rich variety ofcompositional style and musical invention but also in the virtuosic demandswhich they make on the performer. One of the most acclaimed organists of hisgeneration, 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 performancesthat allow the listener to fully appreciate Bach’s mastery of melody andsupreme use of counterpoint.
