Misc. Notes:

#98512 After finding my paper copies I realised that I had only scanned half the sonata and that page 3 of the old PDF came twice, so I made a new complete PDF.

Misc. Comments

  • This piece was probably performed with Carl Phillipp Emanuel Bach at the keyboard in the Berlin court. One of very few works where the viola is not an inner part in a trio sonata. Could be played either with viola and keyboard, where the right hand plays the violin/clavier part and the left the baß, or as a trio sonata with viola, violin and continuo
