Sonata in C major, RV1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sonata VI opens with a Preludio that is the most spacious of any so far. Its striking inital motive begins with an ascending broken chord that continues by retracing its steps downwards, accelerating as it goes. Of such simple materials are Vivaldi’s best movements fashioned. Another telling yet simple effect to look out for is the syncopation in the phrase that ends both sections of the final Giga.
