This trio is unusual for its use of the violin scordatura, which gives the instrument a special resonance and brilliance. The use of a viola da gamba for the second voice brings out the different character of each voice. This is the first edition of this exciting and challenging work, and we hope that players and audiences will enjoy acquainting themselves with the remarkable voice of Konzertmeister Graun.
