Concerto No 2 in G major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
No 2 has a Vivaldian first movement and ends with a contrapuntal jig similar in style to the well known one in Arne’s fourth harpsichord sonata. Two of the three solo movements in between are specifically for organ: the first is for ‘Diapasons’ (and is similar to the solemn diapason movements that often begin English organ voluntaries), while the player is instructed to ‘add the Flute or Principal’ to the second; a note in the edition suggests that they be left out ‘if a Harpsichord be the Instrument’.
