Flute Concerto in D major, Wq 13 - Urtext (Flute and Piano)


Composer: Bach, C. P. E.

Flute concerto in D major, Wq 13 - Urtext (Flute and Piano) by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788), Originally for Flute, Strings, and Basso Continuo, Version for Flute and Piano by Ulrich Leisinger, Published by Breitkopf and Hartel / Musica Rara, Edited by Ulrich Leisinger and Michael Rautenberg, Includes flute part and piano score.

The work heretofore listed under "Wq 13/H.416" has been known as the Harpsichord Concerto in D major. However, the solo part is anything but idiomatic for that instrument, on which C.P.E. Bach was highly proficient. The collections of the Berliner Sing-Akademie, which are now accessible once again, offer proof that the work was originally a flute concerto. Ulrich Leisinger, who has been a peerless connoisseur of the oeuvre of this important composer for many years now, has prepared this first edition on the basis of the two surviving copies.
