JSBach, 15 Sinfonias (3part Inventions) 

    Originally for keyboard alone.This transcription extracted  the top voice of the three parts and prints itseparately to be played by a flute or other treble instrument. 

The accompanying piano part playing the lower2 voices is available separately. 

(The piano score has the "second voice"on treble and the "third voice" on the bass clef of the grand staff.The flute part is in a smaller size staff above the piano grand staff.  This transcription is available for thepianist.) 

   In addition, an audio cd has been made wherethe flute is in the right channel, and the piano accompaniment in the leftchannel. This cd is useful as a practice tool to let eitherplayer practice with a recording.

The user can use panning to either hear bothparts,  or only the other player’s partas he practices. You can download the 16 tracks at

  Allare in the original key. Violins and clarinets can play Sinfonia 15 in the original key of B minor, but theflute range doesn’t  go low enough. So Sinfonia15 has an additional version transposed to E minor so that a flute can play thelow notes of the  melody linewithout  jumping octaves.

 These pieces are a nice addition to the fluteor violin literature as study, encore, or concert pieces.

This can also be played by saxophones or other instruments that are "not in C", if the accompanist plays an electronic 

keyboard with transposing capability (which are readily available).
