Sonata No 3 in A minor, BuxWV254
The third sonata introduces a new, minor key feeling of pathos to the set, with an extended Adagio succeeded by a semiquaver fugue and then a change of mood to a major key Lento. A Corellian Vivace is linked by a characteristically North German chromatic Largo to a final Presto, with a brief reprise of the previous section.
