The tr!jo sonatas present a fresh and unique perspective on music from the 18th century. Inspired by the French baroque "mis en concert" technique, pieces originally scored for solo harpsichord are orchestrated for a larger chamber music setting. According to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach this approach can also be applied to some of his father's compositions: "Bach's clavier fugues can be set out for as many instruments as they have voices; no voice fails to receive it's proper share, and everyone is carried through properly." As tr!jo, Tabea Debus, Lea Rahel Bader and Johannes Lang discover and arrange new repertoire to fit their flexible instrumentation (recorder, viola da gamba, and harpsichord and chamber organ), experimenting with a variety of musical styles. Founded in 2012, tr!jo won the audience award and second prize at the 2nd Berlin Bach Competition in 2015.
