Concerto No 4 in B flat major

composer

 
Concertos Nos 4 and 6 are generally the most modern, and were probably not written in any form until late in Arne’s career. The first movement of No 4 has many galant features, and uses the binary form of the sonata – as in the numerous English accompanied sonatas for keyboard and strings of the 1760s and ’70s – rather than the through-composed ritornello pattern of the concerto.

Les Concertos nos4 et 6 sont dans l’ensemble les plus modernes, et ne furent probablement écrits que vers la fin de la carrière d’Arne. Le premier mouvement du no4 présente de nombreux traits du style galant, et utilise la forme binaire d’une sonate – celle des nombreuses sonates anglaises pour clavier et cordes composées entre 1760 et 1780 – plutôt que le plan de ritournelle continu du concerto.

Die Konzerte Nr. 4 und 6 sind insgesamt die modernsten und entstanden wahrscheinlich erst zu einem späten Zeitpunkt von Arnes Laufbahn. Der erste Satz der Nr. 4 weist viele galante Eigenheiten auf und bedient sich – wie unzählige englische Sonaten für Tasteninstrument mit Streicherbegleitung aus den 60er und 70er Jahren des Jahrhunderts – des zweiteiligen Aufbaus einer Sonate anstelle des durchkomponierten Ritornellschemas des Konzerts.
