Sonata in D minor, RV14

composer
1708; Op 2 No 3

 
Sonata III has a Preludio whose opening motif, treated in imitation, will immediately recall the Domine Deus, rex caelestis movement of the Gloria, RV589. A vocal quality is likewise evident in the third movement (Adagio), which is introduced by the bass part alone, almost in the manner of a cantata aria. This is one of the most powerful sonatas in the set: dark-hued and dynamic.

La Sonata III possède un Preludio dont le motif d’ouverture, traité en imitation, évoque d’emblée le mouvement Domine Deus, rex caelestis du Gloria, RV589. Ce caractère vocal s’avère tout aussi patent dans le troisième mouvement (Adagio), introduit par la seule partie de basse, presque à la manière d’une aria de cantate. Sombre et dynamique, cette sonate est l’une des plus fortes du corpus.

Français: Hypérion

Sonata III beginnt mit einem Preludio, dessen Anfangsmotiv in der Imitation sofort an den Satz Domine Deus, rex caelestis aus dem Gloria, RV 589, erinnert. Auch im dritten Satz (Adagio) kann man ein vokales Element heraushören, das, fast wie eine Kantatenarie, von der Bassstimme allein eingeleitet wird. Diese Sonate gehört zu den ergreifendsten des gesamten Zyklus’: sie ist dynamisch und düster zugleich.
