Classy Bach performs Bach’s Sonata a tre BMV529 3/1/2018

House Concert with Classy Bach

Today, Classy Bach performs a special concert for Dorothy Randolph’s 90th birthday. Classy Bach includes Dorothy on violin, her daughter Tess,(me) on flute, and in this performance Ruth Helm on organ. The special performance is the Bach Sonata a tre in F major for flute, violin, and basso continuo.

It is thought that Back originally wrote this sonata in a series for his oldest son,  Wilhelm Friedemann. They date from his years living in Leipzig, shortly after 1727. This edition renders the 5th sonata for chamber music purposes. So, we decided to take advantage of this version and perform it as Classy Bach!

There appear to be few recordings of this sonata and it seems to be somewhat obscure. As one of our guests who enjoys playing Baroque music on viola da gamba said, “I know all my Bach sonata’s and have never heard of this one before.”

I hope you enjoy this interpretation of this sonata.
