Among the handful of surviving works by J. F. Schreivogel, a violinist active in Milan in the first half of the 18th century, is this sparkling three-movement sonata for violin and continuo. Composed late in his career, it represents the Italian galant style at its most resourceful, both musically and technically. Some moments recall Vivaldi, others Tartini, yet the piece is full of individual touches, especially in its complex harmony and rhythm.
