Sonata in A major


The little Sonata in A major by Pergolesi is taken from a collection of authenticated instrumental music by the composer. It consists only of one short movement written on two staves and probably intended for keyboard. In this performance, though, it is played by violin and cello. Its engaging melodic ideas are of immediate appeal.

La petite Sonate en la majeur de Pergolèse est empruntée à un recueil de pièces instrumentales dont l’authenticité est avérée. Elle consiste en un seul et bref mouvement écrit sur deux portées, probablement pour le clavier. Ici interprétée aux violon et violoncelle, elle nous séduit d’emblée par ses plaisantes idées mélodiques.

Die kleine Sonate in A Dur von Pergolesi stammt aus einer Sammlung von authentifizierter Instrumentalmusik des Komponisten. Sie hat nur einen kurzen Satz, der auf zwei Systemen geschrieben und wahrscheinlich für ein Tasteninstrument gedacht ist. In der vorliegenden Aufnahme ist sie jedoch von Violine und Violoncello gespielt. Die eingängigen melodischen Ideen sind von unmittelbarem Reiz.
