Sonata in F Major composed by Franz Benda (1709-1786)
Realization of the figured bass and editing by Milan Munclinger for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts
Franz Benda composed this sonata for the “royal flutist” Frederick II, in whose service he was concertmaster of the Royal Prussian Court Orchestra.
The simple first movement required improvisational development, which was the custom of the time. In the present edition, this development, as well as the realization of the thorough-bass, was done by the editor.
It is to be noted that Benda had some of his violin sonatas written both in simple nad embellished versions, and the present edition follows this custom.
