Description: (from the preface to the edition)

This baroque sonata was composed in 2017 as a present for the violin »Valerio« on its first birthday, and is dedicated to its owner and violinist Martin Eidenschink. The violin was built by the talented Cremonese luthier Valerio Ferron and it is a copy of Paganini’s »Cannone«, which is now kept in the museum of Palazzo Doria Tursi in Genoa.

The sonata, which is composed of the classic four movements, uses exquisitely traditional patterns and forms, and refers to the models of sonata for solo instrument and basso continuo of the great Italian baroque masters. Originally conceived for violin in F major, a later version of this Baroque Sonata in the style of the ancient Italian masters was prepared for flute or oboe in G major, a tonality that better suits the extension of these instruments.
