This work is in fact an arrangement of the Trio Sonata for two flutes and basso continuo in G major, BWVcomposed around the same time, a process of musical re-evaluation that bears witness to what is arguably Bach ‘s most important contribution to the development of eighteenth century chamber music: The process in reality was simple, requiring only that the right hand of the harpsichord assume the role of the missing third instrument; in the case of this sonata, the flute part not taken over by the keyboardist is moved down to a register more congenial to the viola da gamba.
The normal four-movement mold of the Baroque sonata da chiesa is at work in this piece: Adagio, Allegro ma non tanto, Andante, Allegro moderato. Both these first two movements open in the traditional imitative style of the Baroque trio sonata.
A third of the way into the Allegro ma non tanto movement, Bach turns the melody upside down and proceeds to give it a new contrapuntal treatment; two-thirds of the way in, the original form of the subject returns over a dramatic dominant pedal. Far less energetic and outgoing is the languid Andante, whose ever-repeating sixteenth note mini-arpeggios and broken bass octaves cover a wide and colorfully chromatic harmonic distance in just 18 bars of music.
A wonderful moment, radiant within the movement’s languid E minor tonality, is achieved when Bach arrives at D major at the exact midpoint. Once the eighth notes of the final Allegro moderato begin, they hardly ever rest. Bach seems to be thoroughly enjoying his contrapuntal prowess here, even in the very first measure, when the opening gesture of the harpsichord right hand is used, in inverted fashion, to initiate the bass line.
