The guitarre d'amour, or arpeggione as it came to be known, was invented sometime during or by the respected Viennese guitar maker Johann Georg Stauffer. The instrument -- a kind of enlarged guitar that could be bowed, cello-style, due to an altered fingerboard -- was by no means a success; within just a few years of its birth it had for all intents and purposes suffered extinction. To music lovers, however, this short-lived instrumental curiosity will be forever remembered as the vehicle for Franz Schubert 's Sonata "per arpeggione" in A minor, D.
The three-movement Sonata must be altered somewhat if it is to be played on cello or viola: the arpeggione possessed six strings, tuned to the same pitches as a guitar's, and the resulting extended range can cause problems when the piece is transcribed; in most editions, certain portions of the piece are transposed up or down an octave from their original position to avoid Sonata For Arpeggione And Piano - Schubert* - Various - Schubert extreme registers.
However, Schubert by and large avoided the kind of idiosyncratic arpeggiations that earned the original instrument its nickname, focusing instead on the same focused lyricism that drives a traditional sonata for string instrument and piano; in this way, the work readily adapts to modern performance. The opening Allegro moderato is built around a wistful melody whose fame is such Chemical Insomnia - Epica - The Quantum Enigma many who have never heard or heard of the "Arpeggione" Sonata will find that they recognize the tune.
A second theme proceeds in gentle gusts of sixteenth notes; the arpeggione could not play fast notes with much volume at all, and so the Sonata's quicker portions are almost always marked piano or pianissimo. The Adagio is a rich but introverted musing on an almost hymn-like subject. Schubert places great emphasis on the Neapolitan chord -- a harmony also used to great effect in the opening movement -- during the movement's closing measures, weakening the Sonicflood - Sonicflood of the final cadence and thus inviting the soloist to improvise a brief transition into the final, multi-sectioned Allegretto.
