Tartini's 'Violin Sonata in G minor' is better knows as the 'Devils' Trill Sonata'. The technically very difficult piece is bases on the intriguing story of French astronomer Jérôme Lalande, who told Tartini of a dream in which he made a pact with the devil for his soul. The piece is played by Amsterdam Sinfonietta and soloist Ray Chen.
