Details about Martini : Sonate d'intavolatura per l'organ e il cembalo |  Associated sheet music


These 12 Sonate d'intavolatura per l'organo e il cembalo [Twelve Sonatas in tablature for organ or harpsichord] by Giovanni Battista Martini were composed between the years 1736 and 1740.

They were first published in Amsterdam in 1742 by Michel-Charles Le Cène.

Although Martini referred to these pieces as sonatas, they are in fact structured as suites.

Each sonata has five movements :
  • 1. A prelude (except the last sonata, which begins with an allemanda)

  • 2. A fugue (generically called allegro)

  • 3. A slow movement (usually an adagio)

  • 4. and 5. Two quick movements (usually dance movements such as corrente, giga, gavotta, minuetto, aria)
The preface to the edition of these Sonate d'intavolatura states that they were intended for scholars of the harpsichord and organ who, without traversing the arduous, should know that they may achieve a pleasant level of mastery.

Indeed, Martini’s Sonate d'intavolatura are quite complex compositions, both musically and technically.

Martini expertly mixes the dense polyphonic writing of the late Baroque period (including counterpoint and fugue) with more contemporary tastes, in anticipation of the early Classical period.
