Sterkel, J[ohann] F[ranz Xaver]. Three sonatas for the piano forte or harpsichord with accompanyments for a violin, and violoncello obligato. Book I. Opera XVII.

London, J. Dale, [1784].

Small folio (250 x 310 mm). (2), 28 pp., engraved throughout. Later wrapper (lacking upper cover).


Rare London reprint, published as the first three of six sonatas forming op. 17. "Sterkel has been regarded as one of the important composers in translating characteristics of the Mannheim style into keyboard chamber music [...] The lyricism and curiously prolix, loose-knit structure of many of his sonatas point towards Schubert and others" (New Grove).

Insignificant duststaining to title page due to lack of upper wrapper cover, otherwise well preserved.


Cf. New Grove XVIII, 127.
