Re-typeset from #243330, as the other version is rather difficult to read in places (the beaming is awkward and the accidentals on the figures very small and some of the spacing and slurs need tweaking). This version is untweaked output from Denemo (via LilyPond), and remarkably it took only 8 minutes to enter the music.
|Work Title||Sonata in Canon|
|Composer||Telemann, Georg Philipp|
|Opus/Catalogue Number||TWV 41:B3|
|First Publication||1728-29 in Der getreue Music-Meister (No.28)|
|Composer Time Period||Baroque|
|Instrumentation||3 original versions:
Telemann gives three different combinations of clefs, key signatures and instrumentations at the beginnig of the first system (cf. facsimile):
- A major: upper staff treble clef Flute trav., lower staff alto clef Viola di Gamba, ò di Bracc.
- B flat major: upper staff alto clef Viola., lower staff french violin clef Flaut. dolce.
- B flat major: upper staff alto clef without instrument name, lower staff bass clef without instrument name.
The first version interprets the first note (note on the first leger line above the staff) as an A5 (a2 in german nomenclature), the second and third as an B flat 4 (b1). The lower staff has continuo figures, thus the third version is with continuo. The well known version for treble recorder and continuo (cf. "Arrangements and Transcriptions") is not indicated in the original print, perhaps only because there ist no possible clef-key-combination. The peculiar second version with a recorder playing the bass part two octaves higher, which leads to some problems above all in the cadences, may be Telemanns attempt to indicate the possibilty of a recorder sonata.
