Sonata 'per sonar con due corde'
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Marini’s Sonata ‘per sonar con due corde’ is cast in a single large movement, and is essentially a recital of the virtuoso and expressive devices associated with the violin, including double stopping (hence the work’s title), written-out ornamentation, expressive writing in an idiom derived from vocal music, and rapid passage-work. Marini came from Brescia, and worked at St Mark’s under Monteverdi between 1615 and 1620, though he spent much of his later career in Germany.
