‘London’ Sonata No. 7 in A minor
Violin and basso continuo
edited by Michael Talbot | Alessandro Borin
In A minor, the seventh London sonata is serious and noble in tone, while displaying a dance-like character in its final three movements. It constitutes the perfect marriage between energetic and lyrical expression — the ‘happy medium’ that English players and audiences prized so much around 1700 and identified with the school of Corelli, whose style Bitti does not imitate directly, but whose aesthetic he shares in many respects.
