Domenico Scarlatti's Sonata in G minor, K.315 is a simple and elegant work from the Baroque period, featuring a characteristically short two-measure motif. Originally composed for keyboard, this arrangement for string orchestra skillfully works this theme into every section of the ensemble in a variety of ranges as it develops and expands. A wonderful introduction to Baroque style performance featuring staccatos and tenuto articulations and charming melodic counterpoint. The piece can be successfully performed at a slow or faster tempo, according to the ensemble’s ability.
