In countless solo sonatas from the 18th century, wind instruments vied with ingenuity and temerity to compete with the violin, in reverie or clever, caprice. The trio sonata was the Baroque musical genre by excellence in which instruments could converse in dialogue, in play, or in malicious attempts to trap one another!
