Misc. Notes 1st and 3rd movements share the same meter (3/8) and style, they recall for the menuet tempo despite the fact that the tempo indications are Adagio (1st mvt) and Allegro (3rd mvt). The 2nd movement is joyful (Allegro) and very inventive both melodically and harmonically, the 3rd one is much more classical.

Misc. Comments

  • Possibly incomplete ("f.4v leer"), dubious (fragliches) autograph at State Library at Berlin. As to style, hard to say whether Baroque or Classical since this sort of piece was being composed on each side of 1750, it seems to me... Sonata in C major is also known in a version for Oboe and Continuo, in B-flat major.
