Suite in A Minor
For Solo Flute and Strings
Georg Philipp Telemann
Edited by Judy Nishimura
Optional Continuo part by Victoria Jicha
Available from ALRY Publications
Little is known about the Suite in A Minor. It may date from the first decade of the 18th century, but wasn’t even published until 1936, when a general re-discovery of Telemann’s music eventually led to huge popularity for this concerto-suite for flute. After opening the work with a French style Ouverture, Telemann uses a cosmopolitan blend of French (Les Plaisirs, Réjouissance and the Menuets), Breton (Passepieds), Italian (Air à l’Italien) and Polish (Polonaise) music.
Unique to this re-engraved 2016 edition, in some sections of movements where the flute typically is tacet (Les Plasirs, Minuet I and Passepied I), there are Violin I cues written in the solo flute part in case the flute wants to play along. Also, a new Continuo part has been written by Victoria Jicha to further enhance the performance experience. Full Score and Parts are included.
