Concerto No 5 in G minor

Largo  [2'21]
Allegro spirito  [3'39]
Adagio  [1'19]
Vivace  [4'39]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
No 5 is solidly Baroque in style. The opening Largo is in the style of a French overture, and leads into an Allegro on a contrapuntal theme similar to one in a violin sonata by Arne’s friend Michael Christian Festing, published in 1736. Much of the keyboard-writing in this movement and in the final Vivace uses the cross-handed technique popularized in England by Domenico Scarlatti’s harpsichord sonatas. In general, this concerto is better suited to the harpsichord than the organ.
