Telemann's sonatas, published in 1728, are “methodical” according to the meaning of the word in his own day, since in addition to the plain melody line given to the soloist in the first movements they also provide an ornamented variant each time. Henle publishers commend this instructive and, at the same time, very enjoyable music to today's flautists and violinists. G. Henle's luxurious new publication offers a solo and basso-continuo part in which the two instrumental lines are aligned for orientation, plus another part that gives only an unrealized (but figured) bass line. The Henle edition also includes a full score with a stylistically appropriate continuo realization.

“These six sonatas in Volume 1 (of the twelve) are gems which provide flutists the opportunity to study the art of ornamentation. Telemann has ornamented the first movements of each sonata. This beautiful edition includes a basso continuo part to aid in understanding the harmony.” –Flute Talk
