Johann Gottlieb Goldberg

Paid 67,000 Talers per year, Brühl could afford the extravagance of a composer on his household staff.
Herman von Brühl, a statesman at the Dresden court, was Goldberg's employer
for the last few years of his tragically short life - he died, aged only 29, of tuberculosis in 1756.

GOL001.1

Sonata in C

This is the first of Goldberg's four surviving trio sonatas. The four movements are contrapuntally conceived, and it is not surprising that the piece was for a long time thought to be the work of his teacher, J. S. Bach.
Edited by Brian Clark.

Scoring: 2 violins, continuo.
