This piece contains excellent lessons in baroque articulation and bowing styles. Be sure to instruct your ensemble to play detache semiquavers and short martele quavers. The first violin part includes many string crossing sections, which all sit very well under the fingers. The lower parts are quite challenging, and should always be played with a slightly lifted feel – never heavy – to capture the correct continuo style.
