The violin is the most important instrument in the compositions of Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber (1644 Wartenberg/Bohmia - 1704 Salzburg). The original print of the Sonatae a Violino solo of 1681 uses three staffs which is the way a Trio Sonata was notated but in this case the violinist has to play the other voices too. (Virtuosentum des 17. Jhs.).

Abb.: a) H. I. F. Biber, Engraving by Paul Seel on the frontispiece of the Violin sonates,
