Comments:Jan Hanford said:

A delicate and beautiful performance, although with slow tempos. It is interesting to hear them in the original organ version, they take on a whole different personality. Not as grandiose or solemn as some of his other organ works, the Trio Sonatas are lighter and more melodic. Perhaps that is why they lend themselves so well to transcription for various instrumental ensembles.
