Gramophone Editor's Choice - January 2012
Royal Wedding organist, Robert Quinney, records his first solo disc of Bach Trio Sonatas for CORO.
Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing a brand new recording by one of The Sixteen Orchestra's principal members - organist Robert Quinney.
Recorded at The Queen's College, Oxford, on the beautiful Frobenius Organ (one of the most notable instruments of its kind in the country), the Trio Sonatas are among Bach's most popular and appealing organ works. Complied in the composer's later years, perhaps as studies for his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann, the Trio Sonatas are a unique set of works in the organ repertory. Bach transferred to the organ the Italian trio sonata with its two treble voices and bass continuo; for the organ works, Bach uses right hand, left hand, and pedal.
Robert Quinney is Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey and played at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April.
In addition to his daily work at the Abbey, he maintains a busy freelance schedule as a soloist and ensemble player, and is also Director of Oundle for Organists, whose residential courses offer inspiring tuition for young organists. His double compact disc The Grand Organ of Westminster Cathedral, recorded in 2004, was Instrumental Disc of the Month in BBC Music, earned a 5-star review in the French journal Diapason, and was an Editor's Choice in Gramophone.

"Alongside his impeccable performances, Quinney's greatest achievement is to produce music-making which really communicates itself to the listener'." GRAMOPHONE
