Muffat, Sonata violino solo, Prag 1677


Denkmäler der Musik in Salzburg, Faksimile-Ausgaben, 4. Bad Reichenhall, 1992. Oblong, 24 x 33 cm, 10, ii pp. Beautiful 2-color halftone of the autograph, signed and dated Prague, 2 July, 1677. This elegantly copied manuscript is the earliest known composition by the composer (it was possibly a present to the Prince-Bishop Karl Liechtenstein-Castelcorn in whose library it is preserved) and is Muffat’s only known sonata for solo violin. An extremely attractive and moving sonata sharing many of the features and characteristics of his immediate circle, notably Biber, Schmelzer and Bertali. Wrappers. $33
