Sonata in D Major
Composed by Giovanni Battista (1698-1775)
For flute, two violins, and basso continuo (harpsichord or piano with cello ad lib.)
Edited by Helmut Monkemeyer
Includes piano score and parts
Giovanni Battista Sammartini lived from 1698 to 1775. He was organist and “Kapellmeister” in Milan, and between 1737 and 1741 he taught Christoph Willibald Gluck. Besides two operas, symphonic works and concerti grossi, Sammartini also wrote chamber music, mainly for flutes and strings.
This edition of the sonata has been taken from manuscript parts preserved in the Badische Landesbibliotek in Karlsruhe. Those parts have a number of mistakes and have been corrected for this edition.
The bass is not numbered; intonation signs have been supplemented or altered where necessary by analogy.
