Comments: This is one of the great solo works for the soprano recorder, and is a very accessible showpiece for advanced amateurs. The writing is highly idiomatic, so there are few difficulties with fingering. The second-movement Largo is extremely lyrical, and includes a break for a solo cadenza. (A suggested candenza by the editor is included in the score.)

This arrangement can be adapted quite easily to performance by a full recorder consort by assigning the traverso part to an additional tenor, and the violoncello part to a great bass.

Commentary and source notes in English, French, and German.
