The trio sonatas are some of my favorites of Bach’s works. I particularly love his Trio Sonata G major, BWV 1038 for flute, violin and continuo. As a flutist, I enjoy the idea of being on “equal footing” with the other two musicians.
The Moyse Trio, active in Europe and, following World War II, in the U.S., was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque for their recording of this work on the His Master’s Voice label. Still one of my all-time favorite recordings, you can listen to it here.
