    Nowadays that one is attributed to CPE Bach, if we want to be accurate about all this.

    Wait, really? The more you know. I always thought it was lacking in all the dissonances (thus my personal distaste for it) we usually expect to hear from Bach, so that'd make a lot of sense.

    Really. I mean, this is a Bulldog game that is uncomplicated enough even for me to understand, so I'm going to do it right, at least approximately (like horse shoes and hand grenades, right, Bulldog?) Some editions and recordings of the "complete" sonatas do not include it, which I think silly. I'd rather have absolutely everything. Let me decide what I want, y'know?

    The situation is even more extreme with the Handel flute sonatas. According to Wikipedia, "It is impossible to say how many flute sonatas were composed by George Frideric Handel, but the correct number is somewhere between none and eight." The 1995 Barenreiter edition has eleven. Even without going into the relevant details, and allowing that Wikipedia is not always the most reliable source, I'm sure you can see that Barenreiter, perhaps the world's best major publisher of baroque music, is taking a generous approach for what to include, with copious and excellent annotations explaining exactly what is there and why.

    So the moral is, treat it like a J.S. Bach flute sonata if you want, but do your research and understand the back story.
