Sonata da camera
The Sonata da camera was developed in Italy in the 17th century. The mostly instrumental dance movements mix with others. The slow and fast tempo of the sentences alternate, although the sequence of sentences is not fixed. The Italian composer and violinist Arcangelo Corelli (1653–1713) prefaces the Sonata da camera with a prelude . In addition, each individual sonata forms a cycle that is held together by keeping one key. In addition, the sentences are linked to one another through a motivic relationship.
In addition to the Sonata da camera, Corelli also standardized the Sonata da chiesa towards the end of the 17th century .
