Sonata 7 has the bluff good humour traditionally associated with the key of D major; its last movement, too, has some deft contrapuntal exchanges between treble and bass.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 7 a la bonne humeur bourrue que l’on associe traditionnellement au ton de ré majeur; son dernier mouvement a aussi quelques prestes échanges contrapuntiques entre le soprano et la basse.

Die Sonate 7 ist von jener derben guten Laune gekennzeichnet, die traditionell mit der Tonart D-Dur verbunden wurde; auch ihr letzter Satz verfügt über einige gekonnte kontrapunktische Wechsel zwischen Oberstimme und Baß.
