JOHANNES SCHENCK (1660-c.1720): 12 Trio Sonatas, Op. 3 "Il Giardino Armonico".
Catalogue Number: 12J026
Reference: KTC 1356
Description: Until very recently thought to have been lost in World War II, this 1691 publication represents one of the first collections of trio sonatas published in northern Europe. Although indebted to Corelli, Schenck's astonishing variety of effects and sensitivity to each sonata's key make his collection somewhat of a landmark in the Germanic baroque. La Suave Melodia.
