“Feel-good music!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

These sonatas are utterly delightful! Each one is brim full of charm and youthful exuberance and you will be cheered each time you play them. All are in three movements. No 1 in C major is wonderful, opening with a lyrical  and free slow mvement, followed by a foot-tapping Allegro and a vibrant Presto. The second sonata in F major follows the same pattern and the B flat major third sonata breaks the pattern, ending with lovely minuet. Feel-good music of the highest order!

From the Publisher

In 1756 - at the age of 16 - Anna Bon made herself heard of for the first time with the publication of the six sonatas for flute op. 1. This first volume comprises the sonatas one to three from the op. 1. Each of them is in three movements: a fast centre movement is framed by a slow introduction and a slow closing movement. This formal pattern shows more German than Italian influence. Stylistically, the sonatas are best perhaps comparable to works by J. J. Quantz and C. Ph. E. Bach, musicians at the Prussian court of Friedrich the Great, where Anna Bon stayed as a child.
