'This boldly presented recital … holds the listener from beginning to end' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Herrick's technical mastery is stunningly apparent' (Contemporary Review)
The Trio in G minor, BWV584, is a version of the aria Ich will an den Himmel denken for tenor, oboe and continuo from Cantata 166. The anonymous author has preserved Bach’s oboe and bass lines but invented a second manual part which occasionally makes reference to the vocal line but more often develops motifs from the oboe part in imitation.

Le Trio en sol mineur, BWV584 est une version de l’aria Ich will an den Himmel denken pour ténor, hautbois et basse continue, extraite de la Cantate 166. L’auteur anonyme a conservé les lignes de hautbois et de basse bachiennes, mais a inventé une seconde partie de manuel, qui fait parfois référence à la ligne vocale, tout en développant, plus souvent, des motifs à partir de la partie de hautbois, en imitation.

Français: Hypérion

Das Trio in g-Moll BWV 584 ist eine Version der Arie Ich will an den Himmel denken für Tenor, Oboe und Continuo aus der Kantate Nr. 166. Der ungenannte Verfasser der Quelle hat Bachs Oboen- und Baßlinie beibehalten, jedoch eine zweite Manualstimme ersonnen, die manchmal auf die Gesangslinie Bezug nimmt, aber häufiger imitierend Motive aus dem Oboenpart entwickelt.
