5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Music Superfine Playing March 3 2008
By David J. Friedlander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD. From the minute the music begins, you know this is going to be special. If you are familiar with Baroque trio sonatas, then you are in for a real treat. If you are new to this genre, this is a very good place to start. It may not be the very best place to start but more on that in a minute.

To explain Buxtehude's music is not an easy thing to do in a sound bite. You won't find singable melodies, power chords or even pyrotechnic vituousity by any of the players. Yet, if you are a patient and astute listener, the delights in this music are unending. As you become more familiar with this music, it will not only please you, it can teach and inform you as well. How is that you ask?

Buxtehude's music is mercurial, always changing, searching and exploring. Yet at the same time it is totally charming, effervescent, sweet and consoling. His music is imbued with remarkable intelligence and his construction is confident, assured and logical. His approach is lighter than Bach, but it does not lack substance in any way. In fact it is a wonderful blend of rich ideas and an almost kind gentleness that doesn't preach to you or self consciously try to impress.

What really sells me on this disc is the playing. The music is great enough, but you need artists that have the requisite sensitivity and technical assurance to allow the music to bloom completely without their own showiness interfering. That is the case here. In fact, I can't think of another example of a group that exceeds this one in allowing the music to spring forth so naturally. The sounds tickle the ear but never cloy while the music takes your mind on a journey you likely will want to repeat. That is one advantage to this style of music, since it doesn't continuously recycle any one melody, it won't run through your head uninvited later on.

If you like Baroque music, I don't see how this could disappoint. If you are looking for an introduction to Buxtehude, go ahead because I think you will find this to be great. If Baroque music is rather new to you, you might want to start with something a little more mainstream like Vivaldi or Telemann. Keep in mind Buxtehude predates all of these composers. Still, the music sounds remarkably modern and vital and I would still recommend this to anyone who is willing to open their ears and mind. I promise if you do, this will reward you again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Discovery June 11 2008
By M. De Sapio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Formerly, when I thought of Dietrich Buxtehude (if at all), I thought of a very serious creator of complex organ music who was a seminal influence on J. S. Bach. Not until this CD appeared one day in Amazon's "recommendations" list did I become aware that Buxtehude wrote a series of delightful trio sonatas for the somewhat unusual combination of violin, viola da gamba, and continuo - his first published opus at almost 60 years of age. If you love the chamber music of Biber, you will relish these sonatas: all of the wit, whimsy, tenderness, and improvisatory joyousness of the 17th century are here. This is one of the most beautifully played CD's of baroque music I have ever heard. John Holloway's violin tone flows like molten gold; he and gambist Jaap Ter Linden play together with freedom as well as precision and polish. This CD is the second of a pair (the first contains the opus 1 sonatas). Some potential buyers on a budget may be uncertain as to which volume to purchase. Having bought both, let me recommend this one: opus 2 is even more impressive and masterly than opus 1. No lovers of baroque chamber music should be without this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific disc Dec 13 2013
By Sid Nuncius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am delighted that Naxos have reissued this series. All three volumes are excellent, and Buxtehude's chamber music deserves to be far better known. His organ music is recognised to be of the highest quality (the young Bach famously walked 250 miles to hear Buxtehude play his own music) and while perhaps not quite in that league the chamber music here is extremely good and thoroughly enjoyable. It is full of melody and harmonic invention, is zestful and joyful in places and very beautiful in others.

The musicians are excellent. An ensemble which includes John Holloway, Jaap ter Linden and Lars Ulrich Mortensen ought to be something special and they never disappoint. The obvious delight they take in the music and in playing it together, coupled with an effortless virtuosity means that every movement shines and the discs are a joy from start to finish. The recorded sound (originally from the early 1990s) is very good indeed and the notes perfectly adequate.

This is fine music, beautifully played and I warmly recommend all three disc in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant and Gliding Sound! Feb. 13 2012
By zerosykess - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The sonatas of Buxtehude (book-stuh-HOO-duh) are very pleasant and gratifying!
They soothe like a friendly pet lying at your side warm and loving. Good recording and reverb! The violin melts like butter into the rest of the painting of joyous sound. Excellent music to relax to, study in itself, or entertain. He really was a great master, he just had fewer works.

In my opinion much different and definitively more appealing than his harpsichord or organ music.

I listen to Buxtehude a couple times a week like I do with Mozart, Tartini, Beethoven, and Boccherini. Every time I listen to him I am reminded how talented he was!

Naxos is exceptional quality and sound!!! When you can get these new online for around $5.00 apiece, it is an unreal deal!!! Buy one and find out yourself.

Good Day !

5.0 out of 5 stars Succeed the Germany music tradition July 30 2007
By HSIEH CHENG CHUNG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Buxtehude ut's interesting to me also because of Bach's famuos story, go to listen his music stayed over his holidays. However, when I listenned this CD, it really give me strong impact on music power, it shake me to touch inner mood. Holloway play this, excellent show as his Biber. I find he could catch Germany music faithfully. We should give him more honor from his playing
