Sonata nona, despite the four movement structure, does not follow Corelli’s preferred slow-fast-slow-fast structure, but rather the opposite, opening with a brash Presto, the melody instruments being presented in imitation to the solo cello line. This imitative style of writing continues in the second Largo movement, which is followed by another Presto in fugal style. The Sonata finishes with a lively gigue which, despite being homophonic, manages to sneak in an impressive amount of imitation.
