Retrospect Trio is an exciting new chamber group formed under the umbrella of the larger Retrospect brand in order to focus specifically on the rich and varied trio sonata repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Each member of the group is a distinguished international performer in their own right with a shared passion for historically-informed music-making. They are Sophie Gent and Matthew Truscott on violin, Jonathan Manson on bass viol and Mathew Halls on organ and harpsichord.
