Trio Sonata in C major, BWV529

composer
circa 1727

 
The opening Allegro of the C major sonata is a large-scale ABA movement in which two themes more or less alternate in a scheme thought out only by J S Bach. The plan was one way to organise a major movement, a problem that was to become more and more important as the century progressed. The Largo is, again, a more mature example of the genre implied in the E minor sonata’s Andante, and the fugal finale is a ‘fugue for two violins and bass’.

from notes by Peter Williams © 1990

Das einleitende Allegro der Sonate in C-Dur ist ein groß angelegter Satz in A-B-A-Form, dessen beide Themen sich mehr oder weniger abwechseln, und zwar in einer Abfolge, die nur J.S. Bach ersonnen hat. Der Plan stellte eine Möglichkeit dar, einen gewichtigen Satz zu organisieren, ein Problem, das im weiteren Verlauf des Jahrhunderts immer größere Bedeutung gewinnen sollte. Das Largo ist wiederum ein reiferes Exemplar der Gattung, die schon im Andante des e-Moll Sonate angedeutet wird, und das fugale Finale ist eine ‘Fuge für zwei Violinen und Bass’.
