La Sonate I s’ouvre sur une Sonata à deux sections, dans le style italien – un passage à l’harmonie majestueuse aboutit à une fugue richement ouvragée. Elle est suivie de trois danses de style français entrecoupées de courts passages Grave, à la Corelli.

Français: Hypérion

Die Sonate I setzt mit einer zweiteiligen Sonata im italienischen Stil ein – eine Passage erhabener Harmonik geht in eine üppig ausgearbeitete Fuge über. Es folgen drei Tänze im französischen Stil, unterbrochen durch kurze Grave-Passagen, wie sie bei Corelli häufig vorkommen.
