This is the third movement from the original Flute Trio entitled Trio a Flauti Traversi by Johnn Quantz. The first movement is offered free on this site and each additional movements of the five will be offered in succession on this site.

This movement (Presto) has several meter changes which will have to be rehearsed in order to make it sound natural. The metes change back and forth between 3/8 and 2/4 time.

I have adjusted the range by lowering it a fifth from the original and corrected a few mistakes in the original score.

If you are looking for individual pieces for a recital these will fill your needs and if your want to extend your performance, just add the other movements to suite your needs. Feel free to mix and match any combination of the five to fit your programming.
