The six Flute Sonatas of J.S. Bach fall into two groups of three. In Nos. 1-3 the composer provided a concertante keyboard part, where the right hand is as musically important as the flute and bass lines, apart from the occasional passage when he reverts to a figured bass. Nos. 4-6, however, adopt the four-movement pattern favoured, for instance, by Telemann. This edition is has been edited and realised by William Bennett.
The solo flute part is also included on a separate insert.

These books are fab! They really fun to play and give me something to work to. Definitely recommend - everyone's got to have a bit of Bach in their collection :) Anonymous

Not only did I find the music challenging as a practising grade 8 student, I also thoroughly enjoyed the pieces and they sound brilliant when both flutes and pianos are playing Anonymous

This is Bach at his best. These three sonatas are elegant and neat, providing both technical challenge for the progressive flautist and artistic merit for the performer. William Bennett adapts the music beautifully and gives good performance guidance. A must have.
