Buxtehude’s legacy, for many centuries neglected, has more recently been re-appraised and its importance accepted, not only for the quality of its craftsmanship but also for its undeniable influence on composers such as J.S. Bach. In fact, it is reputed that Bach walked over 200 miles to hear Buxtehude perform on the organ, so extraordinary was his reputation.
Chaconne has previously recorded sacred cantatas of Buxtehude, but this is the label’s first recording of secular instrumental works of the composer.

The VII Suonate, Op. 1 have now been recorded by The Purcell Quartet, who consistently receives good reviews, and is renowned for its artistry in repertoire of this kind. The trio sonatas are a remarkable example of Buxtehude’s beautiful chamber music and together with the trio sonatas Op. 2 are the only compositions that Buxtehude issued in print.

 

"...these sonatas are inventive and full of life, and the later ones seem to get steadily more attractive. They are played by the Purcell group with pleasing vitality and freshness, and the Chandos recording is natural and warmly flattering."

Reinmar Emans

Fono Forum (Germany) - April 2010

“…this is (as one would expect) playing of the highest order.”  “I look forward very much to their take on the composer’s Op 2."

Early Music Review - February 2010

“Buxtehude’s delightfully individual sonatas in laid-back performances.”
 

Lindsay Kemp

 

Gramophone - March 2010

“…The Purcell Quartet brings its customary virtues to these perceptive period-instrument interpretations: incisiveness, tonal transparency and excellent rapport and blend. The two violinists’ elegance of style in their melodic dialogues matches their technical command, and gamba-player Richard Boothby displays his mettle not only as a continuo partner of the inventive Robert Woolley but also as a soloist in the tenor range …        ****


Robin Stowell
 

Early Music Today - February/March 2010

“ … The Purcell Quartet gives amiable performances, eschewing flamboyant gestures or expressive excess in favour of convivial musical discourse.”
