Flute Sonatas, Volume 1
for flute (or oboe) and piano
by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) - German Baroque composer

These are the Four Authentic Sonatas for Flute and Continuo, but also work well for the oboe. The works in this edition are as follows:

  1. BWV 1034 - e minor, for Flute and Basso continuo
  2. BWV 1035 - E major, for Flute and Basso continuo
  3. BWV 1030 - b minor, for Flute and obbligato Harpsichord
  4. BWV 1032 - A major, for Flute and obbligato Harpsichord

For oboists, BWV 1034 in e minor is a lovely work that falls well on the instrument.

BWV 1035 in E major has several movements that will work well on the oboe - in particular, the Siciliano. The range in some movements is up to E6.

BWV 1030 is in b minor in this edition, but is traditionally performed by oboists in g minor (see different editions of this work).

BWV 1032 will also fall well on the oboe, with a range to D6.
