Announcing our debut recording!
LSJ Trio is proud to announce our debut CD release - the world premiere recording of Tommaso Giordani's Sonatas for Fortepiano, Viola da Gamba, and Violin, Op. 30, published in 1782. These stunning and virtuosic works are almost unknown today and yet represent some of the last music composed specifically for the viola da gamba. Dedicated to Viscountess Lavinia Spencer, herself a gamba player, the sonatas deserve wider recognition as wonderfully lyrical, inventive, and forward-looking music of the classical period. The disc will have physical and digital releases this summer!
An Intercontinental ensemble of leading early music specialists, LSJ Trio specialises in researching, performing, and recording 17th- and 18th-Century repertoire for violin, viola da gamba, and continuo. Based in Canada and the UK, our debut recordings arrive in May 2019 and early 2020.
