Adagio from the Easter Oratorio, BWV 249Soprano Aria "Blute nur" from the St. Matthew Passion BWV 244Alto aria from the cantata "Be praise and honor to the highest good," BWV 117Arranged for Flute and Piano by Klaus Holle
This edition within the "flauto principale" series from Zimmermann presents three charming flute solos from J.S. Bach's church compositions - each one providing the original, unchanged flute part, i.e., the flute parts are not transcriptions of passages from the vocal parts or the orchestral accompaniments. Throughout these three movements, the flute is used as the solo and leading instrument, so that the musical contents remain unaffected even if (in the 2nd and 3rd piece) the vocal part is omitted and the orchestral part is replaced by a piano reduction.
