Telemann (1681-1767) published this work as part of his Essercizii musici (1740), a set of sonatas and trios for miscellaneous instruments.

This lovely sonata is a staple of the baroque repertoire; originally composed for viola da gamba, it is commonly performed today on both viola and 'cello. This transcription makes the four-movement work available to the bass clarinetist - with no extended range instrument required. The complete work would be an excellent addition to a recital program; selected movements could make an excellent selection for contest or audition.
