Duet for three voices Trio writing enabled Baroque composers to test their ability to synthesise counterpoint, melody and harmony – a compositional ideal never so perfectly achieved as by Bach in these rare Sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord, which he constantly revised throughout his life. Un duo à trois voix L’écriture en trio permettait à tout compositeur d’éprouver sa capacité à faire la synthèse du contrepoint, de la mélodie et de l’harmonie : un idéal de composition jamais aussi parfaitement atteint que par Bach dans ces rares Sonates pour violon et clavecin obligé qu’il n’aura de cesse de remettre sur le métier tout au long de sa vie... Ein Duo zu drei Stimmen. Das Schreiben eines dreistimmigen Satzes war für jeden Komponisten die Gelegenheit zu erproben, wie gut ihm das Zusammenführen von Kontrapunkt, Melodie und Harmonie gelingen würde. Es geht dabei um nicht weniger als um Kompositionskunst in höchster Vollendung, und niemand erreichte darin eine solche Meisterschaft wie Bach mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Sonaten für Violine und obligates Cembalo. Immer wieder sollte er sich dieser Herausforderung stellen – sein ganzes Leben lang.
