Sonata 6 survives separately in a contemporary manuscript as a recorder sonata. In all its movements, but particularly the second, there are delicious imitative exchanges between the violin and the bass.

La Sonate 6 existe séparément dans un manuscrit contemporain comme sonate pour flûte à bec. Dans tous ses mouvements, mais particulièrement dans le deuxième, il y a de délicieux échanges imitatifs entre le violon et la basse.

Die Sonate 6 ist in einem gesonderten Manuskript aus der gleichen Zeit als Blockflötensonate erhalten. In all ihren Sätzen, aber insbesondere im zweiten, findet ein köstlicher imitativer Abtausch zwischen Violine und Baß statt.
