More about this title

Baroque Flute Pieces, Book II

This five-volume graded anthology acts as an introduction to the flute music of the early- and mid-eighteenth century. All important composers of flute music of the period are represented, starting with the French pioneers La Barre and Hotteterre, and culminating in the great Germans Handel and Bach.

Texts faithfully follow the original sources, any editorial additions being carefully differentiated as such. These marks, which include ornament realizations and breathing suggestions, together with the editorial notes that accompany each piece, are designed to help the progressing flautist to cultivate an authentic playing style. In addition, useful information is given about the composers represented and about the pieces selected and the sources from which they are drawn.

A separate continuo part is provided, allowing the bass line to be doubled on cello or viola da gamba, in accordance with standard continuo practice. This part, in which the bass is figured, may also be used by keyboard players who wish to improvise their own accompaniment.
