This four-movement Sonata in C major, dating from the early 18th-century, is full of youthful energy and character, with accessible and enjoyable challenges for the intermediate double bassist. The accompaniment is lively and supportive, playable on piano or harpsichord, and this would be an ideal introduction to Baroque music for any aspiring young musician.
Each of the four movements includes a range of effective musical and technical challenges, but not at the expense of great music making. The double bass hardly ventures out of bass clef and it would be suitable for a Grade 7/8 level student.
Only available for orchestral tuning.
