Sonata No 4 in B flat major, BuxWV255

composer
circa 1694; No 4 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 B flat sonata opens with a lively Vivace built on a ground bass; the violin dominates the opening section, with the viola da gamba only entering at bar 18, a playfully virtuosic dialogue ensuing for the next 90 bars. This runs into a meditative Lento, then a concerto-like Allegro, brought to a close by double-stopping in the violin.

from notes by Francis Knights © 2002

La sonate en si bémol s’ouvre sur un Vivace animé construit sur une basse contrainte ; le violon domine la section introductive, la viole de gambe ne faisant son entrée qu’à la mesure 18, et les deux instruments s’amusent ensuite pendant quatre-vingt-dix mesures à rivaliser de virtuosité. Suivent un Lento méditatif puis un Allegro digne d’un concerto et se concluant par des doubles cordes au violon.

Die Sonate in B beginnt mit einem lebhaften, über einem Grundbass aufgebauten Vivace; die Violine beherrscht den Eröffnungsteil, die Gambe hat ihren Einsatz erst in Takt 18, und während der nächsten 90 Takte folgt ein verspielt virtuoser Dialog. Dieser geht dann in ein besinnliches Lento und danach in ein konzertantes Allegro über, das mit einem Doppelgriff im Violinenpart zum Abschluss gebracht wird.
