Sonata in C minor, ZWV181/6
Sonata VI in C minor has neither indication of tempo nor of affect to the first and second movements. The third movement is Zelenka’s reworking of the Andante from his capriccio composed in Vienna and dated 20 October 1718 (ZWV185), also scored for two oboes, bassoon and bass, and composed as an imitative ricercare structured upon two themes. The final movement of Sonata VI is a brilliant minuet-rondo with virtuosic and technically taxing episodes, especially for the principal oboist and bassoonist.
