These two solo sonatas for viola da gamba are a part of the Ledenburg Collection. They are contemporary transcriptions of flute sonatas that sound very good on the viol. The composer of the first sonata, the Spaniard Juan Bautista Pla, was a celebrated oboe virtuoso throughout Europe in the eighteenth century. The sonatas were hitherto unknown and appear in print for the first time in this edition. The Ledenburg Collection in Osnabrück was discovered only in 2015. It contains primarily viol music from the time around 1750. The most important works in the collection are the twelve Fantasias for Viola da Gamba Solo by Georg Philipp Telemann, which were long thought to have been lost.
