Twelve Sonatas - OB/BSN (Basso Continuo)

Composer: Handel, Georg Friedrich

Publisher: Performers' Facsimile Edition

Edition: 65276


Twelve Sonatas
for oboe and bassoon (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 might be better with a harpsichord who could read the figured bass. There are no separate parts, just one score.  This is very legible manuscript.
