Product Description

The literature collected for The Intimate Sonate spans the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and tells the story of the development and wide variety found in the sonatas of the period. Works by Italian, Austrian, Moravian and English composers demonstrate diverse textures, tonal schemes, stylistic traits and instrumental combinations. This collection is unusual in including many works for clarino. The seventeenth century marked a metamorphosis in the term sonata. Prior to that time, a sonata was usually a single-movement instrumental prelude to a vocal work, such as a cantata. During the 1600s, sonata began to denote a new genre of instrumental music for a small group of instruments with basso continuo. As they evolved, sonatas were composed of several sections with contrasting tempos and moods. Scholars often grouped the sonatas into two main categories: sonata de chiesa (church sonata) and sonata da camera (chamber sonata). The primary difference between the two was the inclusion of dance movements in the sonata da camera. In practice, the lines between the two were often blurred. Many church sonatas included a gigue or other dance, often as the final movement. Throughout The Intimate Sonate, you hear the defining characteristics of this body of baroque literature. The contrasting sections and the small group of instruments with basso continuo are the common thread in the story of the seventeenth and eighteenth century sonatas. The ways in which these works diverge from the expectation and differ from one another makes them interesting and exciting. Enjoy !


Thom Freas combines a dark and full baroque trumpet sound with smooth, lyrical phrasing that brings to mind Armando Ghitalla. --Flora Newberry, Historic Brass Society

His sound is beautiful . . . a reserved, introspective quality that is a rare commodity in the brass world. --Flora Newberry, Historic Brass Society

. . . a unified ensemble with a gentle baroque style which is surprisingly relaxing to listen to. --Flora Newberry, Historic Brass Society
