Trio Sonatas by Purcell & Handel

Trevor Pinnock writes: ‘One of my treasured memories is taking part in a performance of Purcell’s Come ye sons of Art with Alfred Deller, when I was a choirboy at Canterbury. This memory is always very strong when I come to play at Stour Music, so I have selected a feast of Purcell trio sonatas as the first half of our concert. These highly concentrated compositions are challenging and rich in emotion. Trio sonatas continued to be popular during the 18th century, but the style became lighter and more akin to orchestral concertos of the period.’
