The catalogue of Telemann’s works lists the imposing number of 152 trios. Most of them are available today in modern editions and are widely known. The present Trio Sonata has not been published until now, which is probably due to the unconventional scoring, since Telemann employed the violoncello here in a soloistic manner and not, as was usual, merely as a bass instrument. The two solo parts display the strong influence of the Italian style and are clearly idiomatic for the violin and cello, respectively. Thanks to the progressing chords divided into rapid sixteenth notes, this sonata displays a very full sound and has a joyful and festive character reminiscent of Corelli.
