Trio Sonata in D minor 'Variations on La Folia', RV63

composer
circa 1703 or 1705; Op 1 No 12

 
The Venetian Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) was one of several composers who emulated Corelli. A comparison of his single-movement ‘Folia’ sonata (published as Op 1 No 12 in 1705) with the older master’s reveals many similarities, especially in the choice of virtuosic figurations. Naturally, Vivaldi takes advantage of the extra violin to engage in exciting imitative play.

Le vénitien Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) fut l’un des multiples compositeurs qui imitèrent Corelli. Une comparaison de sa sonate «Folia», en un seul mouvement (publiée en 1705 en tant qu’opus 1, no12), avec celle de son maître révèle quantité de similitudes, surtout dans le choix des figurations virtuoses. Naturellement, Vivaldi profite du violon supplémentaire pour s’engager dans un excitant jeu imitatif.

Der Venezianer Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) war einer jener Komponisten, die Corelli nacheiferten. Ein Vergleich seiner aus einem Satz bestehenden „Folia“ Sonate (veröffentlicht als Opus 1 Nummer 12 im Jahre 1705) mit der vom früheren Meister komponierten weist viele Ähnlichkeiten auf, vor allem in der Wahl der virtuosen Figurationen. Natürlich nützte er die zusätzliche Geige voll aus, um ein aufregendes imitierendes Spiel anzustimmen.
