I am planning a performance of the second movement of Bach's violin sonata BWV 1014 in B Minor. The beginning of second mvt, Allegro is shown below.
As you can see there are some figured bass below the first 4 bars. This causes me a lot of trouble, because of the following.
- If I fill the right hand of bar 1-4 with notes according to the figures, I will weaken the effect of the entrance of theme in bar 5.
- Should I write my own right hand line in bar 1-4, or can I just copy the counter subject in bar 5-8 violin into bar 1-4 piano right hand?
I would be glad if someone can explain how to overcome those issues. Also, are there any existing examples of realization of this figured bass?
