Sonya Monosoff has also carved a niche in the field, but not exclusively, and Austrian Eduard Melkus has gained a formidable reputation as a soloist and as founder of the Vienna Capella Academica (est. 1965), even if his style and technique occasionally espoused elements that are, strictly speaking, unauthentic. J. S. Bach’s six sonatas for violin with obbligato keyboard BWV1014–19 triggered off the gradual demise of the sonata for violin and continuo, even though that genre is well represented in his oeuvre and was perpetuated well into the eighteenth century by Heinichen, Pisendel, J. G. Graun, Franz Benda and others.
