Johann Baptist Georg Neruda - Sonata in A minor for Violin and Basso Continuo
There has been increased general interest in the Bohemian composer Johann Baptist Georg Neruda (c. 1711-1776) over the past few years, especially due to his frequently played trumpet concerto. A respected violinist and longstanding member of the Dresden Court Orchestra, he did, however, mainly compose for the violin. The substantial and technically quite demanding Violin Sonata in A minor was published for the first time ever in 1982 as part of the edition “Bohemian Violin Sonatas” (HN 334). Henle is now proud to present it in a practical single edition with a new preface as well as an additional unmarked part.
