Sonata in B minor, RV36
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sonata V continues the pattern of alternating minor and major keys. Its Corrente is interesting for employing, at different points, figurations in quavers and semiquavers. Such rhythmic diversity, which points forward to the polythematicism of late eighteenth-century music, is actually very progressive for its time.
