Sonata No 1 in F major from De Getreuer Musik-Meister for Flute and Continuo, TWV41
- Editor's Choice
This is one of Telemann's happiest sonatas! The first movement is full of joy with strong rhythms, running passagework and varied articulation. The D minor Adagio is simply beautiful and the closing Allegro leaps about the flute testing finger agility and embouchure control as it captures the essence of a country dance. Fun!
