This flute sonata in D major by Carl Friedrich Abel, which is published here for the first time, is based on a hitherto almost unnoticed manuscript in the collection of the Danish composer Giedde (1756–1816), which is today preserved in the Royal Library in Copenhagen. The Sonata has the Berlin order of movements slow-fast-fast and belongs to the period of the “Empfindsamkeit”. It has expressive melodies and pleasant harmonic surprises. Our edition contains a detailed introduction by Michael O’Loghlin and an additional score with a realization by Dankwart von Zadow.
