The emancipated wind players
Four outstanding international soloists survey the amazing spectrum of woodwind chamber music between about 1750 and 1850 – a very appealing repertoire rarely encountered in concert life. Johann Sebastian Bach's Trio Sonata in C minor forms the conclusion of the famous "Musical Offering," which the Thomaskantor put together in 1747 after visiting Frederick the Great in Potsdam. Joseph Haydn wrote his gallant "London Trios" – originally conceived for two transverse flutes - in 1794 in England for a landed nobleman dabbling on the instrument. The trios by Johann Nepomuk Hummel and Ignaz Moscheles are much more demanding: the wind instruments now make the grand gestures of the Romantic virtuoso age their own.
