2015 Capitol Hill Chamber Music Festival on July 28: New Bach Trios
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute
Joseph Gascho ~ harpsichord

These adaptations for flute and the two hands of a harpsichordist of works in trio sonata format by Johann Sebastian Bach, with the three intertwining voices originally having emanated from the hands and feet of one or two or three players, reflect Bach's own practice and result in four exquisite new sonatas for flute and keyboard that number among the most moving of Bach's instrumental works.

Johann Sebastian Bach composed a Trio Sonata for Two Flutes and Continuo (BWV 1039), but later transferred the first flute part to the right hand of the harpsichord while giving the second flute part to a solo viola da gamba, resulting in his Sonata for Viola da gamba and obbligato, or fully written out, harpsichord in G Major (BWV 1027), performed here with flute assuming the viola da gamba, or second flute, role. Similar treatment will be applied to the most famous of all baroque trio sonatas, the Musical Offering Trio Sonata (BWV 1079) for flute, violin and continuo which Bach prepared for Frederick the Great in 1747, and also to the Organ Trio Sonata in Eb Major (BWV 525), with the right hand being given to the flute, and the organ left hand and pedals to the harpsichord. In Bach's Sonata for Obbligato Harpsichord and Violin in G Major (BWV 1019), the flute and keyboard right hand will alternately share the violin and keyboard right hand parts.
