Telemann Partitas (Kleine Kammermusik)
I found these wonderful pieces in the Petrucci Library that can be played by just about any treble clef instrument in C (violin, viola, soprano recorder, flute, or oboe) and continuo, and I thought I'd share them here because I have never encountered these pieces anywhere else. They are extremely interesting pieces that Telemann clearly wrote for the pleasure of musicians. They work perfectly well as two voice pieces (I like playing them as a soprano recorder and violin duet).
