Bitti’s twelve ‘Cambridge’ sonatas, presented to Cardinal Ottoboni, represent the ‘late’, galant Bitti, full of lovingly sculpted ornamental detail for the violin but with the same resourceful harmony and perfectly proportioned forms as before. The fifth sonata of the group is a pure sonata da chiesa, none of its four movements containing repeats or conforming to a recognizable dance type. The fast movements test the violinist’s agility, while the arabesques of the slow movements highlight lyrical expression.
