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.
