Sonata in B minor for flute or recorder and harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach

Summary

'''Sonata in B minor for flute or recorder and harpsichord''' by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1030) is a sonata in 3 movements:

* ''Andante''

* ''Largo e dolce''

* ''Presto''

The existing autograph manuscript dates from after 1735, when Bach led the Leipzig Collegium. There are errors in the manuscript, and another harpsichord part in G minor that is otherwise the same though transposed, that suggests that this, like the G minor and D major harpsichord concertos, may be among the works Bach transcribed from earlier works originally for other instrumental combinations and in other keys to be playable by performers at hand.
