Sonate e-Moll [Sonata in E minor]
Geminiani, F

Francesco Saverio Geminiani was born in Lucca (Tuscany) around 1680. Following his studies under Carl Ambrogio Lonati in Milan, Arcangelo Corelli in Rome and Alessandro Scarlatti in Naples, he was engaged as a violinist in the orchestra of his native town until 1710 and after that as orchestral director in Naples. In 1714 he went to London where by 1715 he enjoyed such popularity that he was in a position to invite no less than the famous George Frederic Handel as harpsichord accompanist on the occasion of a Royal Court Concert before George I. Geminiani was equally valued as solo violinist, composer, theoretical writer and teacher. and celebrated great triumphs in London, Dublin and Paris. His concerts were sold out, his compositions published, and his instructional works were printed and translated into several languages. The aristocracy and prosperous citizens pampered him as a teacher. He, who was thus favored by good luck all his life, hardly suffered any setbacks. Only once did he become involved in serious difficulties: his passion for collecting art involved him in such deep debt during the first years in London that he very nearly came into conflict with the law. Geminiani died on September 17, 1762 in Dublin. The cause of his death is alleged to have been grief and agitation over the loss of an almost completed valuable manuscript.

In addition to several instructional works, the most important of which is the violin tutor (op. IX) and the tutor for the thorough bass (op. XI), Geminiani published numerous important sonatas and concerti grossi. His six sonatas, contained in the print No. 551 published by M. C. Le Cene in Amsterdam, deserve particular attention since they are the only ones written by Geminiani for wind instruments.

Hortus Music presents the sonata in E minor (No. 3) from the above collection, here for flute and a realized keyboard accompaniment. High notes, passages difficult for breath control and double fingerings are avoided in this work; thus it is particularly suitable for the flute. An additional cello/basso continuo part is also provided.
