‘Dresden’ Sonata No. 4 in A major
Violin and basso continuo
edited by Alessandro Borin | Antonio Frigé
This A major sonata could be regarded as the summation of Bitti’s craft as a composer of violin sonatas, and reveals a particular closeness to Corelli’s musical style. A long, eloquent Grave leads to a strenuous double-stopped fugue, and this pair of movements is then followed by a “lighter” pair resembling, respectively, a sarabande and a gigue. Throughout, the musical language is elevated and smoothly flowing.
