Sonata in G minor C.61 arr. flute and classical/acoustic guitar

Domenico Cimarosa 1749-1801 was an Italian composer who whilst a widely travelled musician belongs to the Neapolitan (Naples) school and he is remembered particularly for his operas. His keyboard music is played on both the piano and the harpsichord and several pieces in more recent times have been transcribed for the classical guitar. In this arrangement for flute and classical guitar of his Sonata in G minor C.61 marked Adagio ma non troppo the flute melody need to be played legato. Players need to have a keen awareness of the eighth note or quaver pulse whilst the realisation plays at 42 quarter (crotchet) beats to the minute. The repetitive element in the music is strong and the ornaments have been written out in this video score. There is the opportunity to linger at the end of phrases but any exaggeration of the music whether in respect to rhythm, dynamic and melody needs to be avoided.
