     The fantastic music of Dieterich Buxtehude enthused many people all over the world. Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrich Handel and Johann Mattheson came to visit him in Lübeck and took classes to elaborate their organ play and their composing skills. Besides his vocal music and the music for keyboard only two publications of his trio-sonatas are preserved.
     With the release on hand ARTS presents the second part of Buxtehude's trio-sonatas, the Sonatas op. 2. They are recorded by the ensemble L'Estravagante who present a remarkable example of Buxtehude's most beautiful music. Their interpretation makes it easy to understand why contemporaries of Buxtehude found these works so fascinating.
