This energetic and effective little sonata in G major might have been played by Abel himself in his concerts. It is part of the Pembroke collection, whose other pieces with bass are generally somewhat simpler. An accompaniment by a cello or a second viol corresponds to the custom at Abel’s time. However, the bass can just as well be played by a keyboard instrument. Our score contains therefore a continuo realisation.
