|Title||Giovanni Battista Sammartini: Sonata in G Major|
|Instrumentation||Bass Clarinet & Piano|
|Range||Extended-range instrument NOT required|
This lovely late-baroque Sonata, originally composed for 'cello, provides the young player with some outstanding technical challenges in the context of an accessible performance piece for recital, contest, or audition.
Giovanni Battista Sammartini (1701-1775) was a prolific composer whose musical language developed during his career from baroque to classical. This sonata is from early in his output, and is certainly more baroque in style, with a fast-slow-fast arrangement of movements and simple melodic and harmonic patterns.
