Becker numbered among the most important North-German instrumental composers of the second half of the seventeenth century. His works stand in the tradition of Weckmann, Reincken, and Buxtehude. Characteristic of Becker are the passages in which the viola da gamba and bass play together and the concertante sections with solos for the individual instruments with a concluding tutti. The present sonata has apparently remained unnoticed until now and appears for the first time in this edition.
