J. S. Bach - Sonata in G minor BWV 1020 (II. Adagio)

Sheet music for flute

Info: Second movement of the Sonata in G minor for Violin or Flute and keyboard (BWV 1020). In this Adagio, the flute sings a melody that grows from many long-held tones, while the harpsichord provides a steady eighth-note accompaniment. This sonata is also attributed to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (H.542.5).

Date: 1734
Artist: Johann Sebastian Bach

The artist: One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
