Trio Sonata in C
Sonata in E, for flute and harpsichord Trio Sonata in E minor played by Gareth Morris (flute)
Susi Jeans (pedal harpsichord)
From Cleveland Lodge, Dorking
First of four programmes which will include Bach's six trio sonatas
When Bach wrote works that might be described as educational-as in the ' Little Organ Book ' and the Anna Magdalena Clavier Book-he saw to it that besides being admirably fitted for their purpose they were equally satisfying as music. This certainly applies to the ' six sonatas for two keyboards and pedal,' usually known as the trio sonatas. Although presumably intended to be played on a harpsichord with two manuals and pedals, an instrument most organists possessed in their homes in Bach's day, the sonatas were clearly designed as an advanced course of study for organists (providing intensive practice in part-playing), iust as the ' Little Organ Book ' was designed for beginners. In this series of programmes four of the sonatas will be played on the pedal harpsichord this evening and on Wednesday, and four of them on the organ on Tuesday and on Friday. Harold Rutland
