It is disputed whether this sonata was really composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. It is also claimed that it was from the pen of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

Helene Schulthess, Querflöte, Sonate in Es-Dur

Among flutists, the Sonata in E-flat major is somewhat avoided. On the one hand, this is because the authorship is disputed, on the other hand because it sounds a bit quiet and sometimes a bit dull in the lower tonal range. I transposed it up by a major third. Now it sounds much more radiant. I also transposed the famous Siciliana. Of course, this gives the sonata a different radiance. It is interesting to compare the two keys. I love them both now.
