The 3 easy sonatinas op. 48 by Ignaz Pleyel presented here are selections from a volume of 6 easy sonatinas originally written for violin and piano. This extremely charming music from the environment of Mozart is an unexpected gift for young flutists to collect their first laurels on the concert podium.
The sonatinas 1-3, which I have selected from this collection, are ideal in terms of their suitability for the flute, their musical quality and their easy level of difficulty. Only a few necessary changes, such as octavations and small changes in double stops in the violin part, were required. The original keys were retained.
