Sonata in E flat major, BWV1031
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Considerable doubt exists as to the authenticity of this sonata, but the Siciliano in particular is so charming that this transcription by Friedman is in no way invalidated. The original score is simple and spare, the flute melody being accompanied by gentle, unobtrusive semiquavers, and Friedman retains the tranquility of the movement even while he fleshes out the score with his particularly romantic view of sonority. He chooses to add a two-bar introduction to the entry of the melody, adapting it cunningly from the short harpsichord interlude which connects the two sections of the original.
