G.F.Handel's (1685-1759) Sonata In B Flat is well-known to the Oboe repertoire. Therefore, when French clarinetist, Emile Stievenard arranged the popular piece for the Clarinet, it was very well-received.
The Sonata In B Flat is made up of four movements; Adagio, Allegro, Adagio and Allegro. Handel's Sonata In B Flat was first published in 1707-10 for Oboe. Stievenard's editions ensure that the Clarinet part contains the articulation, performance directions, phrasing and breath marks necessary to the instrument. For all clarinetists, this arrangement of the popular Sonata In B Flat is essential.
