Sonata No. 3 for Viola da Gamba and Continuo, BWV 1029, transposed to d

Sonata No. 3 for Viola da Gamba and Continuo, BWV 1029, transposed to d

from: J.S. Bach - Chamber Music - Miscellaneous

Originally in g minor, transposed here to d. This arrangement has a precedent of sorts by Bach himself, in that Sonata No. 1 for Gamba, BWV 1027 seems to have originated as BWV 1039, a trio sonata for two flutes. Thus, the convertibility of music in different octaves and for different timbres (as well the number of instruments deployed) is clearly established in the repertory, even without reference to all the firm evidence we have about Baroque performance practice. Note the alternative version in c; this one in d is a little easier. Film buffs take note that the slow movement of this sonata is featured prominently in the opening section of the 1991 movie “Truly, Madly, Deeply.”


Keyboard parts include separate recorder parts at no additional cost.
