Tartini - Devil's Trill (I. Larghetto affettuoso)

Sheet music for violin

Info: The Violin Sonata in G minor, more familiarly known as the Devil's Trill Sonata is a work for solo violin by Giuseppe Tartini. The story behind "Devil's Trill" starts with a dream. Tartini allegedly told the French astronomer Jérôme Lalande that he dreamed that The Devil appeared to him and asked to be his servant. At the end of their lessons Tartini handed the devil his violin to test his skill—the devil immediately began to play with such virtuosity that Tartini felt his breath taken away.
