J.S. Bach Trio Sonatas
Raffaele Trevisani
Paola Girardi
Piet Koornhof

“I do not hesitate to say that he belongs to the best of the flutists of the day,” – Sir James Galway 

Italian virtuoso Raffaele Trevisani is recognized as one of the outstanding flutists of his generation, and has been praised consistently for his style, musicality and beautiful tone quality. One of the very few pupils of Sir James Galway, Raffi has received his distinguished mentor’s enthusiastic approval, and now owns and plays Galway’s 14-carat gold Muramatsu flute. Italian pianist Paola Girardi and South African violinist Piet Koornhof contribute handsomely to these delightful performances of favorite Bach Trio Sonatas. Trevisani has made a range of recordings for Delos, receiving high praise for his C.P.E. Bach Flute Concertos and Mercadante Flute Concertos, as well his own arrangements of Mozart Violin Sonatas for Flute and Piano. The Mozart also features pianist Paola Girardi. One of the Trevisani catalog favorites is the popular “Italian Flute concertos” featuring delightful performances of Albinoni, Pergolesi, Tartini, Vivaldi, Galuppi and Boccherini Flute Concertos with Constantine Orbelian conducting the Moscow Chamber Orchestra (DE 3332). Of this recording Amadeus said “Trevisani’s interpretation has, besides the sheen of its sparkling virtuosity, a quality of sound, a fineness of expression, elegance and lightness of phrasing. A musical freshness that makes it truly significant.”
