This technically rather simple sonata by Gabriel Schütz, which in its structure is reminiscent of the compositions by Nicolai, represents a gratifying addition to the German repertoire for two viols. Lively, quick sections alternate with calm passages over a constant meter. As a rule, new themes are first introduced by each player individually before a synthesis is arrived at. The compass of the six-string bass viol is exploited quite well by the two melody parts. Chords are dispensed with.
