An ABRSM syllabus title, 2014-21, Grade 5-6. Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) published his flute sonatas Op. 2 in 1712 in Venice. This was the first printed sheet music in Italy to prescribe explicity and exclusively the use of the flauto. Marcello may have modelled his work on the sonata-cycle Op. 5 by Corelli, which appeared in 1700. In this cycle Corelli summed up the possibilities of violin technique and the related compositional technique of his age. For his part, Marcello did the same for flautists. The flute sonatas soon became popular and have remained so ever since: three different editions have survived from the 18th century. The present edition (Z. 13476, Z. 13477) was produced by collating the three 18th-century sources.


Sonata VII in Si bemolle maggiore
Sonata VIII in Re minore
Sonata IX in Do maggiore
Sonata X in La minore
Sonata XI in Sol minore
Sonata XII in Fa maggiore
EMB Urtext Series
The volumes of this series go back to the contemporary sources and attempt to come as near as possible to the composers' original intentions, stripping the works of the frequently arbitrary editorial markings which they became burdened with over the course of several decades. The necessary emendations and information on techniques are distinguished unambiguously from the original music text. The use of urtext editions appear as basic requirements on the part of music teachers and performers alike.
