Siciliano from Sonata in Eb major, BWV1031
- Great for teachers
From the Publisher
The simple beauty of this piece is obtained through poignant harmonies and the lilting quality of the traditional Sicilian dance, 'Siciliana' or 'Siciliano'. Appearing often in the syllabus of grade 4 flute exams, it is in the key of G minor, and is the second movement of the flute sonata in E flat [Es] attributed to J.S. Bach.
The included flute duet* is the special feature of this edition, allowing the work to be performed by 2 equal flutes with or without a piano.
*in the duet version, flute 1 has the complete flute solo, while the accompaniment is compressed into a single line for the flute 2.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
