    I love stuff by Hesperion XX/Jordi Savall with Montserrat Figueras. I think they're married?

    If you like the above you should like this - some wonderful transcriptions for viola da gamba:

    Just looked it up, BWV 530 is an organ sonata, I guess "trio" refers to 2 manuals and the pedals? Are the arrangements you refer to Tom all of organ works?

    In strict terms a trio sonata was for two melody parts and continuo, which comprised a 'bass' instrument - most likely a viola da gamba or cello in the period ... Bach himself often took the gamba part in chamber music - plus a keyboard part that was intended as an improvised an accompaniment using figured bass (a kind of shorthand that showed what harmony was intended at key points of the bass part )- so trio sonatas are often performed by four performers. But with organ you can have two melody parts plus bass (no 'accompaniment') performed by a single person - but it's fiendishly difficult to play three actual melodies at once and indeed the trio sonatas for organ were written (as indeed quite a lot of the organ works were) for his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann who was quite the virtuoso thanks to his dad pushing him very hard.

    These basic blocks were organised in all sorts of ways for example some works that are effectively trio sonatas contain the second melody part on the harpsichord and a written out accompaniment that includes bass - where the gamba part is effectively optional and can be omitted. So you can have a trio sonata with one, two, three or even four players involved. (Perhaps all with the same basic musical content).

    That CD contains all sorts of arrangements some by Bach some by others of Bach's music, all in the spirt of the sort of thing that Bach would have done with it.
