Synopses & Reviews
Includes: Sonata No. 1 In b Minor, Sonata No. 2 In E Major, and Sonata No. 3 In A Major.
These six flute sonatas of J.S. Bach fall into two groups of three. In this Book One (Nos. 1-3), the composer provided a concertante keyboard part, where the right hand is as musically important as the flute and bass lines, apart from the occasional passage when he reverts to a figured bass. This volume, edited by William Bennett, includes the solo flute part as a separate insert.
