Yes, yes, the three Trios n° 15, 16 and 17 of 1790 were originally written for flute, piano and cello, and not for the oboe, piano and bassoon; but we know well how in those days, works intended for great amateurs (Londoners, in this case) could easily be adapted for any number of other instruments, whether bass or melodic parts: and so why not this delicious, pastoral combination? As for the Trio by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, its origin is even more unique. Written before 1740, it is written across a number of pages which carry counter-punctual efforts by Johann Sebastian and his son; Wilhelm Friedemann’s writing includes a Sonata for Two Flutes and Harpsichord, which is transcribed here for oboe – the pianist’s right hand taking on the role of the second flute. The bassoon follows the bass part. The rest of the album, all dedicated to the same son, and also to the better-known Carl Philipp Emanuel, also takes in works written for other arrangements but deftly redistributed here for the trio formed by oboist Maurice Bourgue, the pianist Kimiko Imani and bassoon player Sergio Azzolini – based on the transcription principle which was very much the norm in the 18th century.
