Abstract

This research project is a study of the XII Solos for A German flute with a through base for the Harpsichord by Thomas Roseingrave, an eighteenth-century composer and performer. In the context of eighteenth-century musical life, Roseingrave occupies a position as a minor, but noteworthy, composer. He was highly regarded as a performer by his contemporaries, and some of his compositions have endured to the present time. The work presents an overview of his life and gives a descriptive analysis and new edition of his flute sonatas
