These six sonatas do not have an opus number and were composed by Devienne for the flute as well as for bassoon. They are NOT the more familiar and authentic Opus 24 Sonatas, but rather, a second set of six. Up to now, there have been no definite answers to the questions as to which version is an adaptation of an earlier one or who is responsible for this adaptation. Edited by Valeri S. Popov. This set comes with a realized keyboard part, a solo bassoon part, as well as a separate basso part, playable on any bass clef instrument such as cello. Volume 1 is available HERE.
