C.P.E. Bach's Sonata in G minor (Wq 88) for Viola da Gamba and Continuo.
This third sonata for bass viol by C. Ph. E. Bach is similar in genre to the three sonatas for gamba and harpsichord obbligato by J. S. Bach. It has however all characteristics of the empfindsamer Stil . The theme of the second movement is one of Bach's most poignant statements, with its expressive intervals, its dissonances, its strong melodic line, and its frequent and effective use of appogiaturas. Our modern edition is based on the Berlin autograph, which is also included as facsimile. This sonata is equally successful on the viola as the copy in Brussels shows which we have used as well.
