Sei Sonate da Camera Op1 Volume 1 for Flute and Basso Continuo by Anna Bon di Venezia
Piano score, flute and cello parts
Sonate I (C Major) Sonate II (F Major) Sonate III (B Major)
A modern critical edition edited by Dragon Karolic.
In 1756 – at the age of 16 – Anna Bon made herself heard of for the first time with the publication of the six sonatas for flute op. 1. This first volume comprises the sonatas one to three from the op. 1. Each of them is in three movements: a fast center movement is framed by a slow introduction and a slow closing movement. This formal pattern shows more German than Italian influence. Stylistically, the sonatas are best perhaps comparable to works by J. J. Quantz and C. Ph. E. Bach, musicians at the Prussian court of Friedrich the Great, where Anna Bon stayed as a child. Medium difficulty.
