This reconstruction of a trio sonata based on BWV 528 expands the rather slender repertoire of Bachs chamber works from his middle Weimar period.
Pieter Dirksen proceeds from the authenticated sources of the Organ Sonata in E minor BWV 528: the Sinfonia from the Cantata BWV 76, the Organ Piece BWV 528/2 as well as the Prelude and Fugue BWV 541 for organ. His reconstruction goes one step further, however: with competence, courage and flair, Dirksen uncovers the presumably genuine basis of the three closely connected pieces, thus giving rise to a trio sonata for oboe (damore), viola (da gamba) and basso continuo. In consideration of the various instruments and historical tunings (organ and concert pitch), the work can be performed both in G minor as well as in E minor.
