The Sonata in C Major for baroque trumpet and strings by Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, performed on original instruments by the SF based Early Music ensemble Voices of Music. Although Biber gives the title "Sonata" for the works in this collection, "Sonatae tam aris quam aulis servientes" (Salzburg, 1676), stylistically, this work is in many respects one of the earliest trumpet concertos. Virtuoso parts are provided for the trumpet and first violin, and the rich accompaniment results from the blend of the two violas and the continuo group. Live, HD Video from the Voices of Music "Bach, Biber and Buxtehude" concert, March 9th, 2013 in St Mark's Lutheran, San Francisco.
