From the Publisher

At the beginning of the 18th century, the recorder enjoyed great popularity as a solo instrument for amateurs. This also applied to the princesses of the English court, for whose musical entertainment and training Handel's six recorder sonatas were written in 1725/26. Only four of them appeared in print shortly afterwards and thus reached a wider audience; the other two were only discovered for the recorder in the 20th century. Thanks to their melodic and rhythmic conciseness, the pieces, which are comparatively easy to master in the flute part, belong to the most beautiful thing that has been written for this instrument. The continuo instrument demands a well-versed player because of its far reaching bass lines and rich figuration.
