‘London’ Sonata No. 2 in C minor
Violin and basso continuo
edited by Michael Talbot | Alessandro Borin
Typically for Bitti’s earlier sonatas, the Sonata in C minor belonging to the London group features four movements in the standard configuration for chamber sonatas of the time: a prelude-like slow opening movement followed by three further movements of either implicit or explicit dance character. This sonata features a particularly eloquent third movement having the character of a sarabande, while the concluding giga-like movement exhibits irrepressible verve.
