Two sonatas by Johann Georg Pisendel for violin with basso continuo accompaniment have been handed down to us and have now been published for the first time by Carus. Pisendel was the famous concert master of the Dresdner Hofkapelle, which was one of the leading orchestras in the first half of the 18th century. Since he was the leading violinist of his time in Germany to whom renowned composers such as Vivaldi, Albinoni and Telemann Werke dedicated pieces, these two sonatas, written for Pisdendel's own chosen instrument, present a challenge to performers as well as a valuable enrichment to baroque violin literature. The D major Sonata is based on the opening and closing movements of the solo parts from the D major Violin Concerto, which Pisendel had written on the occasion of the dedication of the Catholic Church of the Court in Dresden, in 1751.
