Tartini Violin Sonata in G minor, Bg.5, "Devil's Trill"

The "Devil's Trill" Sonata is one of the great showpieces for violin. This arrangement has the complete original solo violin part (including Becker's cadenza), with accompaniment by either a string quartet or string quintet. It works best with all six parts, but it is also fine to skip Part 6 (most of it is doubled in Part 5).

The solo part is notoriously difficult, but the accompaniment is quite easy.
