Sonate III - André Chéron
Item num.: es00286
by André Chéron
instrumentation: dessus (treble recorder, flute),
bass (bass recorder)
This three-movement sonata comes from the Sonates en Duo et en Trio collection (Paris, 1729), conceived for transverse flute, violin and continuo.
Originally in E minor, in this version it is now transposed to g minor and therefore pleasant to play on recorders in F (treble and bass recorder).
The composer André Chéron (1695-1766) had two famous role models: Arcangelo Corelli and François Couperin. Their art of music writing can be found in Chéron's works, which are written in the "Goût réuni", the "mixed taste" (i. e. the union of Italian and French style).
The work ends with a great, wonderful chaconne.
