From the Publisher

The flute sonata, which was only recently discovered and is printed here for the first time, is the second autograph manuscript of Wilhelmine von Bayreuth known at present. The A flat sonata was originally written for the then common transverse flute, and yet it can also be played today with the modern Boehm-flute. The instrumentation of the bass part is not specified: for harpsichord alone, or harpsichord with violoncello to intensify the bass. The presto of the sonata shows, that Wilhelmine preferred “wild thundering flute playing” over an affected performance.
