Andrew Manze - violin
Richard Egarr - harpsichord
Jaap ter Linden - gamba
So skillfully does Bach handle the three elements of violin, harpsichord, and gamba, testing the relationship between them in every conceivable way, that these pieces might be seen as one of the final and fullest flowerings of the trio sonata form, an apotheosis of the genre. "As a trio the dynamic and expressive range of Andrew Manze, Richard Egarr, and Jaap ter Linden is unparalleled." Classic CD
