‘Dresden’ Sonata No. 1 in C major
Violin and basso continuo
edited by Alessandro Borin | Antonio Frigé
This sonata by Bitti is unusual in having only three movements – all of them quick or quickish movements in C major. However, the movements are nicely contrasted. The first is a euphonious dialogue between violin and bass, while the second allows the violin to show off dexterity of bowing and extrovert playing. The third movement is a spirited gavotte that takes time out to poke fun at textbook counterpoint.
