Another video just out of the oven. I was a little bit in a hurry when I recorded this piece, but I am very happy with the result.
This short sonata composed by G. P. Telemann is the first in a set of 6 canonical sonatas (TWV 40: 118-123). They were first published in 1738. Each sonata is written as a two-voice canon, and was originally composed for 2 flutes or 2 violins. It has since then been arranged for different instruments. I play it here with 2 oboes.
The set of sonatas is also found under the titles 18 Canons Mélodieux or 6 Sonates en Duo (each sonata has three movements). The Sheet music can be found at
