Sinfonia in D major

composer

 
Carlo Ambrogio Lonati’s Sinfonia for two violins, cello and continuo in D major performs the function of connecting the first and second scenes. The improvisatory opening lends itself perfectly to connecting the pastoral first episode to the scene in the palace; the actual arrival at the palace is represented by the solemnity of the second section and the subsequent contrapuntal passage.

La Sinfonia pour deux violons, violoncelle et continuo en ré majeur de Carlo Ambrogio Lonati sert à connecter les deux premières scènes. L’ouverture improvisée relie parfaitement le premier épisode pastoral à la scène dans le palais; quant à l’arrivée même dans le palais, elle est incarnée par la solennité de la seconde section et par le passage contrapuntique subséquent.

Carlo Ambrogio Lonatis Sinfonia für zwei Violinen, Cello und Continuo in D-Dur leitet von der ersten zur zweiten Szene über. Ihr improvisatorischer Anfang eignet sich ausgezeichnet dazu, die pastorale erste Episode mit der Szene im Palast zu verknüpfen: die Ankunft im Palast wird durch die Feierlichkeit des zweiten Abschnitts und die folgende kontrapunktische Passage dargestelltt.

Deutsch: Renate Wendel

La Sinfonia a 2 violini, violoncello e basso in re maggiore di Carlo Ambrogio Lonati svolge la funzione di ponte tra la prima e la seconda scena. L’inizio di tipo improvvisativo (se non avessi trovato questo pezzo avrei chiesto al primo violino di inventare all’impronta un «ponte») si presta perfettamente a collegare la scena «pastorale» con quella «a palazzo»; l’arrivo alla reggia è rappresentato a sua volta dalla seconda sezione dai modi solenni e dalla successiva in stile contrappuntistico.
