Album: Buxtehude, Opera Omnia XIII – Manson / Pandolfo / Koopman / Fentross (Challenge)
Sunday 31 July 2011
The eighth volume in Ton Koopman's survey of the complete works of Dieterich Buxtehude takes us to the Trio Sonatas Opus 1.
The sound of these Italian-influenced studies of agitation is beautifully immediate, the performance a dialogue between two pairs of duet partners, with violinist Catherine Manson a lively foil to Paolo Pandolfo's gloriously open-sounding viola da gamba, and lutenist Mike Fentross tailoring each phrase to Koopman's harpsichord or organ.
