Giovanni Vitali’s set of twelve sonatas Op. 5 for
various combinations of strings and continuo, published in 1669, was the Bolognese composer's most
ambitious collection of chamber music to date. He most likely wrote it as an application piece for
membership of the prestigious Accademia Filarmonica, for each sonata has a dedicatory subtitle
bearing the name of one of the city’s noblemen. This second volume contains four works
– the sonatas for two violins, violone and organ continuo.
