Following on from their debut recording of Vivaldi’s La Stravaganza, Italian ensemble, Armoniosa present here a new recording of Giovanni Benedetto Platti's Trio Sonatas.

However, although the title may read ‘Trio Sonata’, a spectacular surprise soon unfolds: contrary to all convention, Platti scored the part of the second solo instrument in his sonatas for the cello instead of a second violin – thereby providing for an extraordinary and fresh listening experience.

The high-resolution recording on this SACD enables the listener to grasp all the tonal details; the music seems to be within hand’s reach, especially in the recommended three-dimensional reproduction of the 2+2+2 recording.

The man who commissioned these works, Count Schönborn-Wiesentheid, the brother of two Würzburg archbishops, was a cellist in his own right and surely would have enjoyed this disc.
