This movement from Benedetto Marcello's Sonata in E Minor for Violoncello, Op. 1 No. 2, published in 1732, was a piece I had to learn on contrabass as a first semester student in my mixed strings class as a music education major in college. I was given only the solo part, an ancient document crumbling with age. This year (many years later) one of the students at Imperial Valley College, where I teach, needed a piece for his first semester contrabass jury. This piece was just about his current ability, so I dug the piece out for him to study. Not having the original accompaniment, I intuited a basso continuo part to go with it. (The cello part was not written separately to save space, so there will be no cello doubling the lowest basso continuo part in the playback.)
