Well, I don’t know what this formation of sculptures is called but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with Carl Orff.

music of the week – Jean-Baptiste Barrière: Trio Sonata for alto recorder, cello and basso continuo in D minor, Livre II No. 2

by ada

This piece is sort of extraordinary because of the use of the cello as an obbligato instrument. In Baroque chamber music written originally for recorder, violoncello or viola da gamba are mostly used for playing the continuo line, and rarely have an own obbligato part. There are of course some exceptions, like the Telemann double concerto for recorder and gamba (its autograph you can find on my gravatar profile) and the F-major  trio sonata from Essercizii musici, also from Telemann, but I personally don’t know any other examples (at least from the high Baroque period).
