Sonata 10 is what one expects a work in C minor from the period to be—broodingly passionate. Its second and fourth movements are perfect stylizations of the allemande and gigue respectively.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 10 est tout ce que l’on peut attendre d’un morceau en ut mineur de cette période—rêveusement passionnée. Ses deuxième et quatrième mouvements sont de parfaites stylisations de l’allemande et de la gigue respectivement.

Français: Alain Midoux

Die Sonate 10 ist so geartet, wie man es von einem Werk in c-Moll aus dieser Zeit erwartet inbrünstig grüblerisch. Ihr zweiter und vierter Satz sind perfekte Stilisierungen der Allemande bzw. der Gigue.
