Sonata in G minor, BWV 1020
- Great for teachers
From the Publisher
The whole work is exceptional and movement 2 has some of the most beautiful music ever written. So it is a joy to play, (always popular with students - which means they enjoy practicing it) and a wonderful item for concert programming. There is a bit of a mystery about who composed it - formerly it was thought to have been composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, but nowadays is more often attributed to his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel. Movement 1 is listed in the ABRSM 'A list' syllabus for grade 7 flute.
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.
