Concerto No 6 in B flat major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
No 6 has an easy-going galant first movement, with cross-handed passages in the solos and sudden contrasts that suggest the use of a piano. Then come two solo movements, a free fantasia in the manner of C P E Bach (who seems to have had a considerable influence on Arne’s later music) and a lively fugue, also German rather than English in style. The last movement, another minuet with variations, ends in a disarmingly throwaway manner: after the theme the orchestra only contributes to the last three bars.
