Sonata 5, in G minor, is Albinoni at his most elegiac. Its second movement contains the highest note, G above the treble stave, found in any Albinoni work, while its finale, a perpetuum mobile in triple time, has earned the admiration of commentators.

La Sonate 5, en sol mineur, est du Albinoni à son plus élégiaque. Son deuxième mouvement contient la plus haute note, sol au-dessus de la clé de sol, que l’on trouve dans les œuvres d’Albinoni, tandis que son finale, un perpetuum mobile à trois temps, s’est attiré les éloges des commentateurs.

In g-Moll Sonate 5 zeigt Albinoni wiederum in elegischer Stimmung. Ihr zweiter Satz enthält die höchste Note, die in einem Werk von Albinoni zu finden ist, nämlich das G über dem Diskantnotensystem, während das Finale, ein Perpetuum mobile im Dreiertakt, bei Kommentatoren besondere Bewunderung ausgelöst hat.
