Sonata in F Major (K376/374d) by W.A. Mozart
Edited for Flute and Piano by Klaus Holle

The young Mozart wrote his sonatas K10-15 for piano and violin or flute. He is here still following the tradition of the era of thoroughbass which often showed freedom and variety in questions of instrumentation. (When these sonatas were written in 1764, the era of the thoroughbass had actually not ended yet!) Ii today's practice of making violinists shun these “naive” sonatas K10-15, but flutists are fond of them and play them frequently, since this gracious and lovable music suits the character of their instrument.

The “character of the flute” is also found in some Mozart works which actually were not written for the flute. This may be one of the reasons for the numerous flute transcriptions of Mozart's works in those days (two flutes, flute and piano, piano and string trio, etc.). This is the way to produce the present version of the violin Sonata in F Major, K376 (now K374d). Mozart used in this sonata only rarely the low range of the violin and never demanded the typical baritonal character of the low violin sound which cannot be imitated by the flute. This edition endeavors to extend the Mozart repertoire for flutists, all of whom love the composer, although Mozart pretended not to care for their instrument.
