Oboe Sonata in F major, HWV363a
The Oboe Sonata in F major HWV363a has no autograph. Although an early printed edition transposed this sonata to G and allocated it to flute, a manuscript copy at the Conservatoire Royal in Brussels is marked ‘Hautb. Solo del Sr. Hendel’. Another version of the music in Handel’s concerto grosso Op 3 No 4 seems more developed than the sonata version, so presumably the sonata was composed in London some time between 1712 and the publication of Op 3 in 1716.
