The six Sonate a due violini e basso, of Baldassare Galuppi (1706–1785) are known to us from a single non-autograph manuscript preserved in Sweden. These are the composer’s only works in the genre, but their outstanding variety and elegance place them among his finest instrumental creations. In the present edition – the first to be published – the numerous errors in the Swedish manuscript have been corrected, and the editors, in their Introduction, have proposed a possible date for the collection, on the basis of their analysis of musical concordances with Galuppi’s works whose dates are established. A sample continuo realization is also included in the score.
