2 Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti
Arranged for 3 C Flutes and Alto Flute by Hans-Martin Zill
Includes score and parts
Sonata #23 (Originally in the key of E Major)
Sonata #33 (Originally in the key of b minor)
This flute version of the sonatas (#23 and 33 in the Longo catalog) deviate from original keys for tonal reasons. The sonata Longo 33 (b minor in the original) disperses a deep melanchol, its vocal lines can excellently be reproduced with flutes. The same applies to the joyful sonata Longo 23 (E Major in the original); with its echoes of Spanish folklore it certainly suits the sound of a flute quartet.
