Oboe Sonata in C minor, HWV366

1711/2; Op 1 No 8

The autograph of the Oboe Sonata in C minor HWV366 is written on paper similar to fragments of Handel’s debut London opera Rinaldo, and is the only one of the three oboe sonatas published during Handel’s lifetime, as ‘Opus 1 number 8’.

from notes by David Vickers © 2007

L’autographe de la Sonate pour hautbois en ut mineur HWV366 est écrit sur un papier qui est aussi celui des fragments de l’opéra des débuts londoniens de Haendel, Rinaldo; cette sonate est la seule à avoir été publiée du vivant de son auteur («Opus 1 numéro 8»).

Das Manuskript der Oboensonate in c-Moll HWV366 ist auf ähnlichem Papier notiert wie diverse Fragmente seiner ersten Londoner Oper Rinaldo, und ist die einzige der drei Oboensonaten, die zu Händels Lebzeiten als „Opus 1 Nr. 8“ herausgegeben wurde.
