JS Bach Trio Sonata in G Major BWV 1039-Two Flutes and Basso Continuo

Urtext Breitkopf and Hartel
2 Flutes and Basso Continuo

Publisher Description

Perhaps Bach actually did allow himself to be swept away by Telemann’s enthusiasm for the “Flûte traversière,” the Baroque transverse flute, for which he wrote a whole series of pieces, including the Trio Sonata in G major BWV 1039. With the Urtext edition of the sonata, which presumably is the arrangement of a lost first version for two violins and basso continuo, Breitkopf adds the finishing touches to the series of Bach’s “Complete Flute Works” edited by the renowned flautist Barthold Kuijken. In the publication’s textual segments, Kuijken takes a comprehensive look at the various sources and versions. Also very useful for performance practice are the unique characteristics found among musicians who are particularly knowledgeable in early music.

The continuo has been realized by Ewald Demeyere, taking contemporary treatises into account.

“A clear, informative and utterly practical edition of this much loved and important trio sonata. The musical typeface here is extremely clear and of a sensible size. Slurs, additional ornaments and annotations are precise and non-invasive, page turns are practical and the separate bass also includes figures.” (Lisa Beznosiuk, The Consort)

Johann Sebastian Bach

J. S. Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. A renowned harpsichordist and organist, he composed over 1000 works, enriching the German musical style through his skills in counterpoint and harmony. Some of his most popular works include Air on the G String, Goldberg Variations, Brandenburg Concertos, The Well-Tempered Clavier, Toccata and Fugue in D minor, and many more. Bach’s adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures took influence from abroad, particularly in Italy and France.

He also wrote a number of outstanding solo, chamber and concerto works for flute.

Bach is regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
