"... a classy ensemble doing what it does best with no fuss."
- Early Music Review

"Four Stars ... a kaleidoscopic range of styles and invention, stylishly played."
- BBC Music Magazine

"They play with verve, grace, wit (particularly in the several ostinato pieces) and, yes, some tasteful ornamentation ... as ever with London Baroque recording, very highly recommended."
- International Record Review

"London Baroque explore the birth of a genre ... delightful ... I couldn’t imagine this music better played than it is by London Baroque ... this is foot-tapping stuff, elegant and superbly engineered by BIS."
- Limelight

This sixth volume in a series of eight finds London Baroque visiting the birthplace of the trio sonata, 17th century Italy. Instrumental music was becoming important in its own right and soon the violin was recognized as the ideal vehicle for the new style, already evident in the very first trio sonatas such as Giovanni Paolo Cima’s Sonata a Tre dating back to 1610. From an almost bewildering variety, London Baroque has selected 16 works spanning the origins of the genre to its coming of age with Corelli in the 1680s.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
