Sonata No 6 in D minor, BuxWV257
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
