Sonata in c minor
for oboe and bassoon (or cello)
by Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729)- German composer
I. Grave
II. Allegro
III. Larghetto e cantabile
IV. Allegro
Edited by Hans Steinbeck. Since the bassoon does not merely have an accompanying function but is put on par with the oboe as an independent, contrapuntal part, we have here an early example of a duet-sonata which discloses virtuoso passages amazing for the date of composition. This title is published as one performance score. There are no individual parts. A recording of this work (with added keyboard continuo) may be found here.
