Sonata da chiesa in G major, Op 1 No 9

1681; dedicated to Queen Christina of Sweden

The Sonata in G major Op 1 No 9 opens with a ‘call to attention’ and triplet flourishes over a held chord. Broken-chord figurations form the basis of the short Allegro that follows before the flourishes return, this time in the dominant. The central lyrical Adagio in sarabande rhythm is sandwiched between two fugal movements, the second based on the same broken-chord idea.

La Sonate en sol majeur, op. 1 no 9 s’ouvre sur un «appel à l’attention» et sur des fioritures en triolets par-dessus un accord tenu. Des figures en accords arpégés constituent le socle du court Allegro qui suit, avant le retour des fioritures, cette fois à la dominate. L’Adagio lyrique central en rythme de sarabande est pris en sandwich entre deux mouvements fugués, le second reposant sur l’idée en accords arpégés de l’Allegro.

Français: Hypérion

Die Sonate in G-Dur op. 1 Nr. 9 beginnt mit einem „Aufruf“, wo sich Triolen sich über einen ausgehaltenen Akkord ergießen. Ein Spielwerk aus gebrochenen Akkorden bildet die Grundlage des kurzen Allegros, das darauf folgt, bevor die gebrochenen Akkorde wieder zurückkehren, diesmal in der Dominante. Das in der Mitte erklingende lyrische Adagio im Sarabandenrhythmus wurde zwischen zwei fugenähnliche Sätze geschoben, von denen der zweite auf dem gleichen musikalischen Gedanken aus gebrochenen Akkorden beruht.
