ADVANTAGES

The original trio-sonata for viola, bass recorder and figured bass Wq 163 is here arranged as a sonata for bass recorder and harpsichord. If you use modern Instruments, the recorder isn’t too quiet in this version. Moreover, this arrangement is well suited for lessons in which a baroque viola isn’t at disposal. There are two versions: the range of the earlier version (manuscript of Berlin) is F3 to D5 and of the later version (manuscript of Brussels) is F3 to C5. By the way, we consider the version of Berlin as the better one. You can get the part of the earlier version also notated in treble clef.
