The simple beauty of this piece is obtained through poignant harmonies and the lilting quality of the traditional Sicilian dance, 'Siciliana' or 'Siciliano'. It is often listed in the syllabus of grade 4 flute exams. It is in the key of G minor, and is the second movement of the flute sonata in E flat [Es] attributed to J.S. Bach.
The included flute duet* is the special feature of this edition, allowing the work to be performed by 2 equal flutes with or without a piano.
*in the duet version, flute 1 has the complete flute solo, while the accompaniment is compressed into a single line for the flute 2.
