Georg Philipp Telemann's Six Sonatas for Two Flutes, also known as Flute Duets Op. 2, are dedicated to two young music lovers and appeal to students and music enthusiasts alike. The pieces foster the ability to practice musical interpretation as well as express a playful love of music-making. The sonatas can alternatively be performed on the violin. The new Wiener Urtext Edition is based on Telemann's original print as well as two earlier editions, granting insight into the contemporary ornamentation practice. Further suggestions for the performance are given in the notes on interpretation by Susanne Schrage. The layout of the new edition is cleanly designed and page-turns are avoided. A proper foundation has been laid for both a historically informed performance and a relaxed bout of music-making. For intermediate-level players.
