J. Garth: Keyboard Sonatas, Opp. 2 and 4

Along with his friend and teacher Charles Avison, Garth was one of the leading lights of the music scene in northern England in the late baroque era (late eighteenth century). His music was completely neglected until re-introduced by The Avison Ensemble in concerts and the groundbreaking recording of his Cello Concertos in 2007 (DA 5059). In his lifetime Garth was best known for his Op. 2 Sonatas, written in the northern English style with accompaniment by two violins and cello; this and the Op. 4 set represent almost the last flowering of the true baroque era. Each sonata is in two-movement form and, while thoroughly ‘conventional’ in style, includes some masterful composition. The works offer endlessly fascinating listening.



"... The recording is excellent, as it needs to be, in order to so justice to the top-drawer musicianshop on display from these fine players."

Mark Tanner - International Record Review - September 2014


"... Gary Cooper is a persausive advocate for Garth’s sonatas here, finding a good number of subtle nuances on several different instruments (harpsichord, chamber organ and fortepiano)... In this  recording, the interplay within the group allows us a glimpse of the fine expressive potential of the relatively neglected - even unloved - genre of the ’Accompanied Sonata’"  ****

John Irving - Early Music Today magazine - June-August 2014
