Georg Muffa's (1653 Megéve/Savoy - 1704 Passau/Germany) collection
''Armonico tributo cio ‚ Sonate di camera comodissime a pocchi ò a molti
stromenti ''(Salzburg 1682) was composed for the celebration of 1100
years of the bishopric of Salzburg. What sets these sonatas apart is
the variety of settings for various groupings (from the Trio to the
Concerto) as is already indicated in the title. The forces required
could adapt to the number of msuicians available or the place of
performance. In the following musical example, you can hear a full
string orchestra which is contrasted in more elaborate sections by a
solo trio (= concerto grosso technique). (E. Stadler)
