J.S. Bach: Trio Sonatas for Organ – Robert Quinney

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to release a brand new recording by one of the principal members of The Sixteen’s orchestra, the organist Robert Quinney.

Recorded here on the beautiful Frobenius Organ (one of the most notable instruments of its kind in the country) at The Queen’s College, Oxford, the trio sonatas are among Bach’s most popular and appealing organ works. Bach compiled the trio sonatas in his later years, perhaps as studies for his eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann, and they are a unique set of works in the organ repertoire.

‘Alongside his impeccable performances, Quinney’s greatest achievement is to produce music-making which really communicates itself to the listener.’


                            Critics’ Choice 2012 

"If perfection exists in classical music, it might be found in Bach’s organ trio sonatas, where three voices combine to produce harmony and counterpoint of heavenly beauty. Robert Quinney’s wonderful performances, with cheerful liveliness in the fast movements, make for joyful listening."

Christopher Nickol - Gramophone magazine - Christmas special edition - December 2012

"... a very full disc but one which is highly satisfying..."

Malcolm Riley - Gramophone magazine - January 2012

"... On this recording by the sub-organist of Westminster Abbey. Robert Quinney ... finely wrought contrapuntal lines remain crystal clear with sensitive registration bringing intimacy to this chamber music."  ****

Katherine May - Early Music Today magazine - December 2011 - February 2012

"...The eloquently expressed accompnying notes by the performer himself are concise and have evidently been thoroughly researched and thought out. They beautifully compliment an excellent recording, which is to be thoroughly recommended..."

David Newsholme - International Record Review - December 2011

                Performance ****      Recording *****

"...Robert Quinney embraces the transparency of Bach’s trios with an ear for their variety, sparkle and cogency. The Frobenius organ at Queen’s College, Oxford, provides him with an enticing palette of sounds, while its mechanical security allows Quinney’s lucid and carefully considered articulation to emerge without compromise..."
