Recorder Quartet in B flat major, FWV N:B1

composer
for recorder, oboe, violin and continuo

 
The four-movement Quartet in B flat major for recorder, oboe, violin and continuo is among one of Fasch’s most popular works. From the imitative opening which neatly introduces each of the instruments in turn, through to the G minor second ‘Largo’ with its accented chromatic lines and senza basso passages, there are catchy tunes and contrapuntal ingenuity in equal measure. The last movement in particular demands virtuosity from all concerned.
