BACH'S SOXATAS FOR VIOLA
DA GAMBA AND CEMBALO
Played by HOWARD BLISS (Violoncello) and GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
Sonata No. 2, in D-Last two
Movements
THE second half of the Sonata in D begins with one of those flowing airs, in four time, with the beats divided into three, that Bach handled so graciously.
It sings its way along sweetly on the 'Cello, mostly fairly high up, and is followed by a sprightly Movement, neatly diversified by its middle section, in which the Pianoforte takes up the genial sweep of rapidly-running notes.
