Sonata in A major, RV31
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sonata II begins with a Preludio a capriccio clearly modelled on the movement that opens Corelli’s Op 5. It is a composite movement in which rapid broken-chord figurations over pedal notes alternate with snatches of Adagio. This is followed by a short Presto featuring busy semiquavers on the cello. A Corrente, an Adagio beginning in recitative style and a Giga bring up the rear.
