These two solo sonatas for viola da gamba and basso are a part of the Ledenburg Collection. They are obviously contemporary transcriptions of violin sonatas by Tartini, whereby only the G-Minor Sonata was listed until now among Tartini's authenticated works. The Sonata in B-flat Major is also a new discovery for the violin. The composer, Giuseppe Tartini, was one of the most important Italian violin virtuosos in the second half of the eighteenth century. These sonatas represent an interesting enrichment of the early Classical repertoire for the viola da gamba. The Ledenburg Collection in Osnabrück was discovered only in 2015. It contains primarily viol music from the time around 1750. The most important works in the collection are the twelve Fantasias for Viola da Gamba Solo by Georg Philipp Telemann, which were long thought to have been lost.
