Description

Arranging the three gamba sonatas BWV 1027 – 1029 for flute and obbligato harpsichord or piano may at first seem rather daring. The three-octave range of the viola da gamba (B – e flat2) that Bach used in these sonatas along with its low register are quite different from that of the baroque tranverse flute (d1 – e3). Yet Bach’s Sonata for viola da gamba and obbligato harpsichord in G-major BWV 1027 links the gamba and flute literature. It also exists as a Trio Sonata for two flutes and basso continuo BWV 1039. The first flute part corresponds to the right hand of the harpsichord in the gamba sonata. The second flute part sounds an octave lower on the gamba. In the present edition all three gamba sonatas have been arranged for flute and obbligato harpsichord according to this historically documented principle of voice exchange and octave transposition. The only exception is the Adagio from the Sonata in g-minor BWV 1029. Here we dispensed with voice exchange so as to reduce the

Reviews

Hält man die neue Bearbeitung des Flötisten und Musikwissenschaftlers Henrik Wiese in den Händen, ein Arrangement der Gambensonaten BWV 1027-1029 für Flöte und Klavier, so wundert man sich vielleicht zunächst über den Weg von der Gambe zur Flöte. Dass jedoch schon Johann Sebastian Bach selbst zu solchen Bearbeitungen gegriffen hat, mag den meisten nicht bekannt sein. (…) Wiese orientierte sich bei seinen Bearbeitungen der drei Sonaten also direkt an der Vorgehensweise des barocken Meisters, wodurch sie historisch bestens zu verantwortende Arrangements darstellen. Die Tonumfänge wurden unter Berücksichtigung der damals üblichen Traversflöte und Bachs Cembalo eingerichtet (plus Stichnoten für die moderne Böhmflöte). Eine spannende Reise also zurück in die Zeit von Johann Sebastian Bach. Flöte aktuell 01/2013
