Transcription of the Bach Sonatas in b minor, Eb major, A major, with the first part playing the flute solo line, second and third playing the accompaniment. It can also be performed with an alto flute playing the third part. These sonatas are masterpieces of three-part counterpoint. Bach continually maintains in the music a sense of both contrapuntal clarity and harmonic fullness while creating great beauty. He was a master at blending all these elements.
