Trio Sonata in G major, BWV530

composer
circa 1727

 
The G major sonata is a veritable concerto in its first movement: themes and ‘style’ are so Italianate that some scholars even speak of a ‘Vivaldi database’ for this work. The Lento has the quality of a sonata for two flutes and bass in Bach ‘s typical plaintive style, and the fugal finale is Bach at his most gloriously complex.

from notes by Peter Williams © 1990

Die Sonate in G-Dur gleicht im ersten Satz einem wahrhaftigen Concerto: Themen und ‘Stil’ wirken dermaßen italienisch, dass manche Musikwissenschaftler diesem Werk geradezu eine ‘Vivaldi- Datenbank’ nachsagen. Das Lento hat den Charakter einer Sonate für zwei Flöten und Bass in Bachs typisch schwermütigem Stil, und das fugale Finale zeigt ihn in seiner ganzen herrlichen Vielschichtigkeit.
