Sonata in E minor, Op 6 No 8

composer
1711 or slightly later; from 12 Trattenimenti armonici per camera, Op 6

 
An opening chromatic bass line proclaims Sonata 8 as a work charged with high emotion; the rasping violin chords in its second movement convey a mood of desperate urgency.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 8 est un morceau empreint d’intense émotion, comme le révèle sa ligne de basse chromatique initiale; les âpres accords de violon de son deuxième mouvement évoquent une atmosphère d’insistance désespérée.

Français: Alain Midoux

Die chromatische Baßlinie zur Eröffnung erklärt die Sonate 8 zum emotional stark aufgeladenen Werk; die ächzenden Violinakkorde ihres zweiten Satzes vermitteln den Eindruck verzweifelter Dringlichkeit.
