Trio Sonata in G major, BWV530

composer
circa 1727

 
The highly Italianate Sonata in G major (BWV530) starts both voices together in concerto style, suggesting the need for two equal instruments, and maintains this equality throughout, even allowing the bass line a handful of ‘breaks’. For the tightly-woven, harmonically complex second movement we have introduced another texture, removing the chordal continuo instruments but allowing the cellist to improvise occasional chords. The third movement is a marvellously complex fugue.

La très italienne Sonate en sol majeur (BWV530) débute par l’ensemble des deux voix, dans le style du concerto, ce qui laisse penser qu’il est nécessaire d’avoir deux instruments égaux, et maintient cette égalité tout au long du morceau, permettant même quelques ‘pauses’ à la ligne de basse. Pour le deuxième mouvement, de texture dense et à l’harmonie complexe, nous avons introduit une nouvelle texture en supprimant les instruments de basse continue en accords mais en laissant au violoncelliste la liberté d’improviser quelques accords. Le troisième mouvement est une fugue d’une complexité merveilleuse.

Die im italienischen Stil komponierte Sonate in G-Dur (BWV530) beginnt unisono mit beiden Oberstimmen im Konzert-Stil, was uns zwei gleiche Instrumente wählen ließ. Sie behält diese Gleichberechtigung der Stimmen bei, und auch die Bass-Stimme bekommt einige unvergeßliche Momente. Für den dicht verwobenen und harmonisch komplizierten zweiten Satz wählten wir eine andere Struktur, indem wir auf Tasten- und Zupfinstrumente verzichteten und die Basslinie dem Cellisten überließen, der den einen oder anderen Akkord auf seinem Instrument improvisierte. Eine prächtige und komplexe Fuge bildet den dritten Satz.
