Trio Sonnerie is one of the longest established and most highly regarded chamber groups working in Europe today. Having begun its life in 1982 as a trio of violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, it evolved into a more flexible group, allowing it to perform repertoire such as Bach cantatas and concerti, and extend its limits to classical, even early Romantic composers. This recording heralds the return of the group to the trio format.
Trio Sonnerie and Sonnerie, its alter ego, have made countless recordings and played in most national and international early music festivals. They bring to the music ‘playing of real elegance' (The Independent) and ‘one could even go as far as to say musical bliss!' (The Times).
