Only a handful of J. F. Schreivogel’s compositions for his instrument have survived, among them this impressive and forward-looking three-movement sonata for violin and continuo in E minor. Evidently composed during the mid-1710s, it betrays the influence of Venetian composers such as Vivaldi and Albinoni. Schreivogel writes very idiomatically for the violin, but never at the expense of musical eloquence or solidity of structure.
