product description

for obbligato harpsichord and viola da gamba CSWV:F:21, edited by Leonore und Günter von Zadow. Christoph Schaffrath was an important member of the "Berlin School," a group of composers active at the court of Frederick the Great in the mid-18th century, which included the Graun brothers and C.P.E. Bach. This sonata bears clear characteristics of the sensitive style with beautiful melodic lines and frequent passages of parallel thirds. It has similarities to the sonatas by Johann Gottlieb Graun, but is shorter and makes fewer technical demands on the players. Edition Güntersberg
