Adagio from Keyboard Sonata in D


This is a piece possessing great melodic beauty and players should understand that the melody is the main musical focus in a performance. This is an Adagio movement and pianists/keyboard players should avoid playing the movement too quickly. Sadly, much of this composer's music was lost when Napoleon invaded Venice in 1796 and for the music editor this composer has been a recent discovery. The trills begin on the note whilst the spread chord does not sound as a spread chord in the in the realisation. There are some rhythmic options when playing the melody given in ossia staves. Keyboard players have wish to add additional ornaments but do ensure that these do not detract from the beauty of the melody.
