“A good edition of favourite duets”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]
This is a good addition to the options for buying these wonderful Op 2 duets by Telemann. The sonatas themselves (six of the best) have been sensitively edited but there is a great deal of scholarship on show here as well. The Preface sets these works in a historical context, there are notes on interpretation and a foreward by Telemann himself. There is also a section called Critical Notes which covers in detail the sources used in editing. If you don't own these Sonatas already, this is a good starting point - and if you already have a copy, this will supplement it well.

From the Publisher

Georg Philipp Telemann's Six Sonatas for two flutes of 1726, also known as Flute Duets Op. 2, are dedicated to two young music lovers and, thus, appeal explicitly to a circle of pupils and music lovers. The pieces foster the ability of musical interpretation as well as a playful love of music-making and are thus ideal for music lessons. The sonatas can alternatively be performed on the violin. The new edition of the Wiener Urtext Edition is based on Telemann's original print as well as on two earlier editions which grant insight into the contemporary ornamentation practice. Further suggestions for the performance are given in the Notes on interpretation by Susanne Schrage. The layout of the new edition is clearly designed, page-turns within individual movements have been avoided thanks to fold-out pages. Thus, the proper foundation has been laid both for a historically informed performance and for relaxed musicmaking.
