Description: After the Concerto label brought us all 3 CDs worth of Platti's keyboard sonatas, Oehms now provides these trio sonatas written during the decade from 1724-34. While his duties at the court of Würzburg were reduced after the death of his employer, he spent much time playing with and writing for a cello-playing Count nearby. These works, in four movements and with violin and cello sharing the melodic line, are part of that friendship and whose handwritten manuscript only recently became available. Sebastian Hess (cello), Rüdiger Lotter (violin), Florian Birsak (harpsichord, fortepiano - Sonata No. 12).
