Twelve Sonatas-OB/PN (Basso Continuo)

Composer: Handel, Georg Friedrich

Publisher: Performers' Facsimile Edition

Edition: PFE151


Twelve Sonatas
for oboe and piano (basso continuo)
by Georg Friedrich Handel (1685-1759)- German Baroque composer

Sometimes called Handel's Opus 1, this is a facsimile edition of the 12 Sonates pour un Traversiere un Violon ou Hautbois con Basso Continuo. The bass line is figured but not realized. These could be performed as a duet of oboe and bassoon (cello) but would be better with a harpsichord also. There is no separate oboe part.
