Bach, CPE - 4 Sonatas for Flute and Harpsichord (Piano) Vol. 1 (Breitkopf & Hartel )
These two Sonatas in D major and E major for flute and harpsichord obbligato
(Wq 83 and 84) were written in Potsdam in 1745 and 1749, while C. P. E.
Bach was in the service of King Frederick II of Prussia. Both sonatas
also exist in genuine trio Sonata versions (Sonata in D major for flute,
violin and basso continuo W. 151 and Sonata in E major for two flutes
and basso continuo W. 162). In this present version, the right hand
ofthe harpsichordist takes over one of the concertante parts. Only when t
his part rests does the harpsichord fulfill the function of a
thoroughbass. This edition was based an the autograph and an copies by
