GRA028.1

GRA028 Sonata in C minor

This is the second of a set of ten trio sonatas in Darmstadt, which are all unusual in the prominence they give to the second violin; it is almost as if Graun had written them to be played by himself and some royal patron, who would have had to play first violin. It has three movements: an Adagio followed by two Allegros.
Edited by Brian Clark.
16pp.
Scoring: 2 violins, continuo.
GRA050.1

GRA050 Sonata in G

Surprisingly late for an instrumental line-up such as this, Johann Gottlieb Graun's sonata for two violas da gamba and continuo looks to the future, both in its musical language and in its three movement form (slow, fast, fast). The top part ranges from the D below middle C to the G at the top of the treble clef, and the second to the E at the top of the same. The continuo part might be better played at 16', since the gambas sometimes overlap with the bass. The piece has been recorded by Christophe Coin and Vittorio Ghielmi.
