Johan Sebastian Bach, composer, violinist and keyboard virtuoso, was born on March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany and died on July 28, 1750 in Leipzig, Germany.

Today, he is probably the most famous composer of the Baroque Period in music (1600-1750) and definitely represents the culmination of Baroque style. One of the main differences between Baroque style and that of the Classical Period (1750-1825) which followed, was the use of counterpoint - literally note (i.e., ?point?) against (?counter?) note (?point?). With 21st Century ears, we tend to hear music as a single melody, usually, the highest part, with (harmonic) accompaniment; however, much of his music consists of several melodies, all of equal importance, being played simultaneously.

The original complete collection of Bach?s works, the Bach-Gesellschaft edition, appeared in Leipzig in 46 volumes between 1851 and 1899. It was the first ?complete works? edition to publish a composer's notation without deliberate editorial tampering, to include almost every composition, and to provide a critical apparatus, serving as a model for virtually every critical edition since that day. Vol. IX, with a preface dated April 1860 signed by the editor, Wilhelm Rust, contained three sonatas for flute and keyboard.

In this piece, the Flute often has the melody, but it is not necessarily the melody (i.e., the left and/or right hand of the keyboard part may have an equally important melody).

Bach is best known for his composition for keyboard, especially organ, and, because he was employed as a church musician, his religious works: the Mass in B Minor and Saint Matthew Passion are perennial favorites at Christmas and Easter, respectively.

He composed for the Flute over a period of about twenty year, beginning with the Sonata in A Minor for unaccompanied Flute (BWV 1013). Sonata No. 2 in Eb Major (BWV 1031) was written while he was the conductor of the court orchestra in Cöthen, between 1717 and 1723, for the French flautist Pierre-Gabriel Buffardin (1690-1768), who he had met at the Dresden court in 1717; Sonata No. 1 in B Minor (BWV 1030) was also probably written for Buffardin.

One of the two surviving manuscript copies of Sonata No. 2 in Eb Major (BWV 1031) was in copied by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788) - Bach?s second oldest son, also a composer, who himself wrote many works for the Flute; this has caused much debate about the authenticity of Sonata No. 2 in Eb Major (BWV 1031) and, for the same reason, Sonata No. 4 in C Major (BWV 1033, now believed to have been originally composed for unaccompanied Flute by J. S. Bach with a figured bass line added later by C. P. E. Bach): were these works by Johan Sebastian or Carl Philipp Emanuel? Either way, they are Bach Flute Sonatas!
