Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In style Sonata 11 is the most concerto-like work in the set; the sequential roulades in its outer movements recall the violin concertos of Albinoni’s Opp 7 (1715) and 9 (1722). Its finale displays Albinoni’s mastery of the rhythmic device known as ‘hemiola’, in which 6/8 and 3/4 metre (both employing six quavers to the bar) effectively alternate.
