Georg Philipp Telemann’s 12 fantaisies à traversière sans basse (12 Fantasias for solo flute without bass), TWV 40:2–13, was published in Hamburg in 1732–33. The current edition is an urtext edition, which aims to remain as close as possible to the first edition. The collection progresses by key, from A major to G minor, with the keys being avoided that were impractical on a Baroque one-key flute, i.e. B major, C minor, F minor and F-sharp major. A facsimile of the 1732 first edition is included from page 28 onwards.
