Johann Adolph Scheibe, Triosonata F Dur | Secrets of Ogan Playing Contest, Week 77
This is my entry for the Secrets of Organ Playing Contest. I play the Triosonata in F Dur by Johann Adolph Scheibe.
As far as I know, Scheibe wrote three Triosonatas for organ. They are not as difficult as the Triosonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach, but they are not easy either. And they are not as good as Bach's Triosonatas, but thet are certainly not bad either. Actually, it seems strange to me they are not played more often.
I created a score directly from the (digital copy of the) manuscript. It's already four years ago I did that, and it's also four years ago I played this piece, so I had to practise it again. Well, you won't hear me complain, I had some fun hours mastering this great Triosonata again.
The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradisi, of the Schittger organ in the St. Martini-kerk, Groningen (http://www.sonusparadisi.cz/en/organs/netherlands/groningen-st-martini.html).
