Sonata No 2 in G major, BuxWV253

composer
circa 1694; No 2 of VII Suonate án doi, Violino & Violadagamba, con Cembalo, di Dieterico Buxtehude, Organista della Chiesa della Beat. Virg. N.S. in Lubeca, Opera Prima

 
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.

La sonate en sol majeur fait précéder un Vivace fugué fort enlevé d’une brève introduction Lento ; une nouvelle section lente conduit à un Allegro à 6/8 de caractère italien, opposant cette fois une figuration en accords brisés au violon à une basse chromatique descendante. Après un nouveau répit accordé par un Largo, l’œuvre se conclut par un Arioso à cinq variations dont la figuration rappelle les variations pour clavier de Buxtehude.

In der Sonate in G-Dur bildet eine kurze Lento-Einleitung den Auftakt zu einem ein lebhaften, fugenartigen Vivace; ein weiterer langsamer Satz führt zu einem italienisch anmutenden Allegro im 6/8-Takt, bei dem diesmal Violinenfiguration mit gebrochenen Akkorden mit einer absteigenden chromatischen Basslinie in Kontrast gesetzt wird. Nach einer weiteren langen Largo-Atempause folgt ein Arioso mit fünf Variationen, dessen Figuration an Buxtehudes Klaviervariationen erinnert.
