 Trio Settecento Ensemble


Trio Settecento, the "superlative Chicago-based early music ensemble" (Gramophone) completes its geographical grand tour of the European Baroque with An English Fancy, its highly anticipated survey of English Baroque chamber works. It’s the final leg of a musical journey that has delighted record collectors and critics alike. Previous installments include An Italian Sojourn, A German Bouquet, and A French Soirée.
 
On An English Fancy, trio members Rachel Barton Pine, violin; John Mark Rozendaal, viola da gamba; and David Schrader, harpsichord and positiv organ, focus on the fantasy, the form that infatuated English Baroque composers. Listeners will venture into unusual realms of sonic imagination by virtue of the daring experiments in melody, harmony, counterpoint, and other musical elements heard in these 16th- and 17th-century works.
 
English folk tunes infuse many of the pieces. The album opens with Trio Settecento’s own adaptation of William Byrd’s nine keyboard solo variations on "Sellenger’s Rownde." It closes with the trio’s variations on Henry Purcell’s "Hole-in-the-Wall."

Marco Bizzanini - Musica magazine - July/August 2013


"... This is a charming selection of pieces, charmingly played and so very English!"

Ardella Crawford - American Record Guide - March/April 2013


 "...all of the pieces are once again given exeplary performances. The recorded sound is bright and forward ... While regretting the end of this particular series, I look forward to further releases by this excellent ensemble; warmly recommended."

James A Altena - Fanfare - March/April 2013


                      Performance ****             Recording ****

"... The music may be extravagant but the performances are well-balanced. When sections of a dance repeat, the performers ad ornamentation in a way which seems both tactful and spontaneous."

Iwan Hewett - BBC Music magazine - April 2013
