Friedrich Wilhelm Rust: Due Sonate a Violino Solo senza Basso
New edition and facsimile
Although the present sonatas by the Dessau court Kapellmeister Friedrich Wilhelm Rust (1739–1796) display the modernistic tendencies, Bach’s traces are nevertheless deeply and clearly perceptible. Rust can justifiably be called a second-generation student of Johann Sebastian Bach, for between 1760 and 1764 he studied in Halle and Berlin, respectively, with Bach’s sons Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel. But Rust is less likely to have become acquainted with Bach’s violin artistry from his sons. Thus, Rust presumably was introduced to Bach’s solo violin sonatas by Franz Benda, the acknowledged doyen of the Berlin violinists.
In the stylistic heterogeneity between Bach, Tartini, the gallant era, and the classic, and the formal indetermination between sonata and suite lies the reception problem of these two grandiose compositions:
