Sonata No 2 in G major, BuxWV253
The G major sonata prefaces a lively fugal Vivace with a brief Lento introduction; a further slow section leads into an Italianate 6/8 Allegro, this time contrasting broken-chord violin figuration with a descending chromatic bass line. After another Largo pause for breath, an Arioso with five variations follows, the figuration reminiscent of Buxtehude’s clavier variations.
