Bach’s Six Sonata cycle for violin and harpsichord ranks among the best examples of the Baroque Trio Sonata repertoire. Unlike common practice, both instruments participate equally in the unfolding of the thematic-motivic material and the keyboard part is almost entirely specified by Bach. Andoni Mercero, former member of the Cuarteto Casals, proves the point that you do not have to be world famous to make a reference recording: His warm and silvery timbre shines while Alfonso Sebastián’s skillfully manages to bring superb ensemble playing, both highlighting the majesty of these works. Eudora Records’ audiophile engineering and the warm and immersive acoustics of the San Miguel Church, in Daroca (Zaragoza, Spain), allow the textures to blossom with its exquisite sound.
