Sonata No. 1 in G major, BWV 1027, Sonata No.2 in D major, BWV 1028, and Sonata No.3 in G minor, BWV 1029, respectively, are three sonatas that Johann Sebastian Bach wrote for viola da gamba and harpsichord.

There is no certainty as to when Bach wrote his three viola da gamba sonatas. Various musicologists suggest that they were composed as early as 1720, during Bach's Köthen period, at the court of Prince Leopold, where the Court Capelle included the well-known gamba player Christian Ferdinand Abel. Other evidence suggests that the sonatas were composed in Leipzig around 1740, where Bach was cantor at the St. Thomas Church, as well as director of the Collegium Musicum from 1723 onwards.

The Sonata in G Minor (BWV 1029) consists of three movements: Vivace, Adagio & Allegro. Baroque scholar Ulrich Siegele has suggested that Bach's last viola da gamba sonata began as a full concerto, possibly for two traverso flutes. The historian Philipp Spitta has called it "of the greatest beauty and most striking originality." The sonata begins with a theme by the viola da gamba, which is soon joined by the harpsichord. This is driven forward with lively figuration. The middle movement, in B flat major, allows the parts to intertwine even more, ending with the allegro, which begins with repeated notes in the gamba part soon to be taken up by the lower harpsichord part.

Although originally written for viola da gamba and harpsichord, I created this arrangement for String trio (Violin, Viola & Cello).
