Rebay’s violin and guitar sonatas occupy a special place in Rebay’s extensive production on account of their innate quality, establishing expansive, lyrical, refined and rounded dialogues between both instruments. This sonata opens with a march that is solemn in nature and has a certain Mahlerian, decadent feel. The second movement is a monumental set of variations on a German folk song which unfolds through the circle of fifths as the instruments keep up a constant dialogue. The shortness of the frenetic scherzo and its accompanying trio underlines the second movement’s central role. For the finale Rebay uses a favorite device, a moto perpetuo “a la Weber”.

This new edition is based on the autograph manuscript, housed in the Rebay Collection from the Austrian National Library in Vienna.

This sonata is also included in Violin and Guitar Sonatas
