The history of German baroque music is inevitably dominated by the towering figures of Schütz, Buxtehude, Bach and Handel; and yet, throughout the period, there was much fine, rewarding and delightful music being produced by their colleagues and contemporaries, and Johann Philipp Krieger is an excellent example. This Nuremberg composer was a contemporary of Corelli, and in many ways his instrumental music is related in style. These twelve Trio Sonatas approximating to the 'sonata da chiesa' format are attractive, beautifully crafted and tuneful pieces, each one consisting of several sections with frequent changes of pace and mood within each work but resulting in a satisfying, finely structured unity.
Virtuoso 17th-century sonatas - Johann Philipp Krieger's Trio Sonatas draw upon the influence of the Northern German, Italian and English consort music traditions to create music of irressistible appeal and flair. Parnassi Musici give spirited and vibrant interpretations of this repertoire, which lovers of Baroque ensemble music will adore. (www.savd.com.au)
