Sonata No 6 in D minor, BuxWV257

composer
circa 1694; No 6 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 D minor sonata prefaces a fugal Allegro with a brief Grave; this leads into a busy section marked ‘Con discretione’, which is interrupted by a five-bar Adagio. Two virtuoso fast movements follow, each separated by a slower section, which returns to round off the sonata. The final 6/8 fast movement begins Poco presto, and is then marked Poco adagio and Presto, indicating the flexibility of tempo Buxtehude expected.

La sonate en ré mineur fait précéder l’Allegro fugué d’un bref Grave ; leur succède une section foisonnante marquée « Con discretione », interrompue par un Adagio de cinq mesures, puis deux mouvements virtuoses rapides, séparés par une section plus lente qui revient pour conclure la sonate. Le mouvement vif final, à 6/8, commencé Poco presto, est ensuite indiqué Poco adagio puis Presto, témoignant de la souplesse de tempo exigée par Buxtehude.

Bei der Sonate in d-moll geht ein kurzes Grave einem fugalen Allegro vorauf; dies führt zu einem geschäftigen Abschnitt mit der Markierung ‚Con discretione‘, der durch ein fünftaktiges Adagio unterbrochen wird. Darauf folgen zwei virtuos gespielte schnelle Sätze, die jeweils durch einen langsameren Abschnitt getrennt werden, der dann zum Schluss der Sonate wiederkehrt. Der Schlusssatz im 6/8-Takt beginnt Poco presto und ist dann mit Poco adagio und Presto gekennzeichnet, was auf die von Buxtehude erwartete Flexibilität des Tempos hindeutet.
