Trio Sonata in E flat major, BWV525
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Sonata in E flat major BWV525 may perhaps have been the easiest of the sonatas for Wilhelm Friedemann to master, but it is quite the opposite when given to two violinists, for the key is not an easy one when players are presented with Bach’s intricate figurations: if the composer had transcribed this sonata, he might well have transposed it into D major. The elegant central movement is surrounded by two good-humoured Allegros whose playful nature gives plenty of scope for spirited playing, as well as good exercise for the cellist’s bow and the harpsichordist’s rhythm section – or should it after all just be for the organist’s two feet? It doesn’t really matter, because it is such good music!
