Example text

Bach’s sacred works and the highly charged, if stylized, sentiment that would grow popular with C. P. E. Bach’s generation. Notwithstanding the musicological complications, the G-major Trio Sonata is easy to love, with its melodic lines tracing contrapuntal coils above Bach’s elegantly plotted bass. The sonata’s four-movement form is typical of the Italian Baroque “church sonatas,” with their characteristic succession of slow-fast-slow-fast. But within this structure, the work’s procedure shows some distinctive aspects.

The sonata’s four-movement form is typical of the Italian Baroque “church sonatas,” with their characteristic succession of slow-fast-slow-fast. But within this structure, the work’s procedure shows some distinctive aspects. In the broad opening Largo, derived from an initial upward scale motif, the composer writes out what would normally be notated as a literal repeat of both halves in order to create a variation on the material the second time around; in other words, instead of a simple A-A-B-B structure, the material is here massaged considerably into A-A'-B-B'.

It served to conclude the work’s premiere, on December 14, 1936, at the Villa Aurelia in Rome, when it was played by the Pro Arte Quartet. Barber was distressed that the honor of the premiere went to an ensemble other than the Curtis String Quartet, but the scheduling proved impossible for that foursome. Immediately after the premiere Barber withdrew the finale for a rewrite; and when the Curtis String Quartet finally played the piece—at a private prebirthday concert for Barber on March 7, 1937, at the Curtis Institute—they presented only the opening Molto allegro and the ensuing Molto adagio.
