Notes & Reviews:

J.S. Bach's six Trio Sonatas BWV 525 - 530, works whose charm resides not only in their rich variety of compositional style and musical invention but also in their virtuosic demands, occupy a treasured place in the organ repertoire. David Newsholme offers a fresh perspective on these seminal works, re-ordering their sequence and drawing on the unique qualities of the Metzler organ of Trinity College, Cambridge. David Newsholme, former Organ Scholar at New College, Oxford and Salisbury Cathedral, is Organist at King's School, Canterbury and Music Director of the Canterbury Singers.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Portland Baroque has made the first recording I know of an arrangement of the other three-harpsichord concerto in D minor. The booklet notes say that Hogwood had made a version of this concerto mixing solo violin and woodwinds, but the version used here is by Huw Daniel for three violins. The original version is interesting in that it is basically a solo harpsichord concerto with two supporting harpsichords. Of the recordings mentioned above, I am partial to the Freiburg Baroque, but my favorite remains the 1981 recording by Sigiswald Kuijken with La Petite Band (EMI or DHM 47817). I still find that Kuijken's interpretation, especially in comparison with more recent readings, is both engaging and respectful.
