Moderato - Adagio - Allegro

Sei Sonate per il Cembalo, cogli Accompagnamenti di Violino e Violoncello che si possono sonare anche sole. Composte da Federico Herschel e publicate in Bath, al primo di Ottobre, MDCCLXIX.

Published in the early years of Herschel's tenure in Bath. Very little of his music (these sonatas being the principal exception) was published in his life-time. The keyboard sonata with distinctly subservient (indeed, dispensable) string accompaniments was a popular form of music-making in the period 1770 - 1810.
