Sonata No 4 in B flat major, BuxWV255
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.
