Typically for Bitti’s earlier sonatas, the Sonata in B flat major that heads 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 has a particularly interesting second movement (Allemanda), where Bitti displays his rhythmic finesse and spontaneity of invention.
“The modest technical demands of the ‘London’ sonatas in particular, and their attractiveness, make the appearance of this edition most welcome.”
