Op. 1]. Sei Sonata [!Sonate] á violino solo E Basso sia [!ossia] cimbalo Dedicate á s. A. Sma. Il Principe Di Carignano. Opera prima. Musical manuscript score
[ca 1740] - Published in 1739 as Sei Sonate by Carlo and Giovanni Tessarini in Urbino, Italy (RISM C781; 1 copy, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris) and in the same year by Mlle. Monnet, Mme, Boivin, and Le Clerc (RISM C780; 5 copies, all in Europe). Manuscript copies of the third movement of Sonata no. 1 and the first movement of Sonata IV at the Henry Watson Music Library, Manchester, U.K. (RISM 806550137 and 806550138)."[Canavas] was an Italian violinist and composer. The date of his arrival in Paris cannot be determined with certainty. The first unequivocal reference to him is the privilege of 1739, connected with the publication of his first set of violin sonatas in Paris in the same year; the sonatas had just been published in Urbino, so it is possible that he only then arrived in Paris. His two sets of violin sonatas, separated by 24 years, are perhaps less interesting in themselves than as an indication of changing styles in the mid-18th century." Michelle Fillion in Grove Music Online. Folio (350 x 250 mm). Green cloth-backed marbled boards with titling gilt to spine. 28 pp. Notated in brown ink on 16-stave paper, with a watermark featuring a bunch of grapes. Includes elaborate bass figures.First sonata with caption title "Sonata 1er[!]." Sonata IIa begins on third staff of f. 4r.; "false start," also with heading "Sonata IIa" and apparently identical with the main text, to first two staves and pasted over; "Sonata iida" in ink to overpaste in a different hand. Some additional overpaste corrections. Some penciled slurs to slow movement of Sonata IIa; pagination and other annotations in pencil in a modern hand.Binding very slightly worn and rubbed.
