From the Publisher
Despite the many flute pieces that he composed, Quantz deemed worthy of publication only his six Sonatas for flute and basso continuo op. 1, and the present Six Duets op. 2, which was issued in 1759. What makes them particularly impressive is, above all, the melodic substance of these works. Advanced students will find a musically and technically rewarding collection which is ideal for ensemble playing and harmonic ear training through the interplay of the two flutes. The present edition is based on the original print. The many suspensions and grace notes were resolved exactly as Quantz himself described in his flute method.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
