Giuseppe Valentini

Sonata 'La Montanari' in A major

Violin basso continuo

Prof. Michael Talbot

La Montanari has a five-movement plan with a 'double' finale: a finale of normal length is followed by a miniature second finale, like coffee following a dessert. The model for this arrangement may have been the Giga-Gavotta sequence that occurs quite often in chamber sonatas. In the preface of his Idee per camera Valentini tells performers that if they find a work too difficult or too long they may reduce the number of fast movement to two. This is probably the first-ever critical edition of a Valentini violin sonata to be placed in public circulation.
