Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 ? 1767) was a German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he became a composer against his family's wishes. After studying in Magdeburg, Zellerfeld, and Hildesheim, Telemann entered the University of Leipzig to study law, but eventually settled on a career in music. He held important positions in Leipzig, Żary, Eisenach, and Frankfurt before settling in Hamburg in 1721, where he became musical director of the city's five main churches. While Telemann's career prospered, his personal life was always troubled: his first wife died only a few months after their marriage, and his second wife had extramarital affairs and accumulated a large gambling debt before leaving Telemann.

First published in a German music periodical in 1728, this work was originally written for bassoon and continuo but was accompanied by a note from the composer that the solo part could be played two octaves higher on a recorder. In more modern performances the flute has become the instrument of choice as the level of difficulty makes the piece difficult to play on a bassoon or recorder. In four short movements in the traditional slow-fast-slow-fast pattern the work is just over ten minutes in length. Beginning with a somewhat lyrical triste, the first movement is sweet. But the second movement explodes with exuberance and it is indeed difficult to image the work played on a recorder, much less a bassoon, at the tempo typically selected by the modern flautist. Likewise, the third movement andante leads to a similarly animated vivace which seem barbarically difficult even for a modern flute equipped with the Boehm key system. The work is brilliant and animated and an excellent example of the type of piece Telemann tossed off with little effort and great effect.

Although this piece was written for period instruments, I created this arrangement for the Concert (Pedal) Harp.
