Retrospect Trio is a baroque super-group of four superstar baroque instrumentalists: Sophie Gent (violin), Matthew Truscott (violin), Jonathan Manson (cello & viola da gamba) and Matthew Halls (conductor, organ and harpsichord).
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. The four members of the group (Sophie Gent violin, Matthew Truscott violin, Jonathan Manson cello & viola da gamba and Matthew Halls conductor, organ & harpsichord) are all distinguished international performers in their own right with a shared passion for historically informed music making.
The ensemble's premiere recording, the first in a two-disc series exploring the timeless beauty of Henry Purcell's sonatas, marked the 350th anniversary of the celebrated English composer's birth.
