This violin sonata by Carl Friedrich Abel is found in a manuscript in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in München and obviously remained unnoticed until now. The sonata is idiomatic for the violin without being virtuosic. It is cast in the slow-fast-fast three-movement form which was used until about 1760, and is thus a typical member of the time of the Empfindsamkeit. Our edition contains a detailed introduction by Michael O’Loghlin and an additional score with a realization by Dankwart von Zadow.
