 Re: Telemann Sonata?

Rick -

Musicians in the baroque period were expected to improvise ornamentation in slow or moderate tempos. There are a number of sources of information on how this was done, and among the most important is Telemann's 12 Methodical Sonatas. They were published as being for flute or violin plus basso continuo (harpsichord plus viola da gamba), but everyone played them, and everyone interested in baroque music plays and studies them now.

The first movement of each sonata is written out two ways: plain and fully ornamented. The goal was to teach young players how to ornament tastefully and in the proper style. Today, these are great treasures, since they show how a master composer though ornamentation should work.

They're also excellent music. All recorder players play them, and all clarinetists interested in pre-classical music should, too.

Best regards.
