    The Sonata in D G.1 was written in 1690, when Giuseppe Torelli was a member of the cathedral orchestra of San Petronio in Bologna, and composed works for solo trumpet(s) for religious feast days. Particularly noteworthy here is the fact that the two violin parts are designed to be just as virtuoso as the solo trumpet, which even rests during the slow third movement. This present first edition of the work was compiled from handwritten part material located in the Archives of the Cathedral of San Petronio. The edition for trumpet and piano contains two solo parts, which make it possible to play the work both on a B-flat trumpet as well as on a D instrument.
