Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The fifth sonata in C opens with a fugal movement that stresses repeated-note semiquaver figuration. The following section dispenses with the viola da gamba, which rejoins at the Largo, leading to a gigue-like Allegro (the numerous dynamic contrasts indicated by the composer), another freely modulating Adagio and a final extended Allegro.
