Six Sonatas for Flute and Basso Continuo, Op. 1, Vol. 1 (Flute and Piano)
Six Sonatas for Flute and Basso Continuo, Op. 1, Vol. 1 (Flute and Piano), By Anna Bon di Venezia, Published by Furore Verlag.
In 1756 - at the age of 16 - Anna Bon made herself heard of for the first time with the publication of the six sonatas for flute op. 1. This first volume comprises the sonatas one to three and are each in three movements: a fast center movement is framed by a slow introduction and a slow closing movement. This formal pattern shows more German than Italian influence. Stylistically, the sonatas are best perhaps comparable to works by J. J. Quantz and C. Ph. E. Bach, musicians at the Prussian court of Friedrich the Great, where Anna Bon stayed as a child.
