from “12 Fantasias for Solo Violin”, transcribed for solo flute
Georg Philipp Telemann's collection of 12 Fantasias for Solo Violin, TWV 40:14–25, was published in Hamburg in 1735. It is one of Telemann's collections of music for unaccompanied instruments, like the twelve fantasias for solo flute.
This first fantasia is originally in the key of B-flat major, but we propose it today in the key of E-flat major, which makes it playable on the flute. The original fantasia also includes some polyphony, which had to be simplified.
Thanks to Jonnathan for suggesting this piece!

from “24 Caprice-Etudes for Flute”
This Presto in G minor is the sixth piece from a collection of 24 “Caprice-Études” for flute by Theobald Boehm, the German inventor who perfected the modern Western concert flute. These studies originally served as a proof of the playability of Boehm's improved instrument in all 24 keys, but they are also very useful technical exercises.

from “12 Horn Duos”, arranged for two flutes
This Andante is the tenth of Mozart's Twelve Duos for Horn, K. 487, which he composed in Vienna in 1786. They were probably intended for the basset horn, a wind instrument similar to the clarinet, but larger, in F (less often in G), and with a darker sound.
