Sonata in E Minor for Flute and Continuo, BWV 1034
Sonata in E minor for flute or recorder and basso continuo by J. S. Bach (BWV 1034) is a sonata in four movements: Adagio ma non tanto, Allegro, Andante, Allegro. The piece is largely believed to have been written during Bach's Cöthen period (1717–23), when he was employed as Capellmeister for Prince Leopold of Cöthen. However, there is some evidence that this may have been written slightly later, after Bach's move to Leipzig. Watch here

Flute in Saint-Petersburg
The word flute first entered the English language during the Middle English period, as floute, or else flowte, flo(y)te, possibly from Old French flaute and from Old Provençal flaüt, or else from Old French fleüte, flaüte, flahute via Middle High German floite or Dutch fluit. The first known use of the word flute was in the 14th century.
Today, a musician who plays any instrument in the flute family can be called a flutist (pronounced "FLEW-tist", most common in the US), or flautist (pronounced "FLAW-tist", most common in the UK), or simply a flute player (more neutrally). Flutist dates back to at least 1603, the earliest quote cited by the Oxford English Dictionary. Flautist was used in 1860 by Nathaniel Hawthorne in The Marble Faun, after being adopted during the 18th century from Italy (flautista, itself from flauto), like many musical terms in England since the Italian Renaissance. Other English terms, now virtually obsolete, are fluter (15th–19th centuries) and flutenist (17th–18th centuries).

Johann Sebastian Bach Partita in A minor for solo flute
Wolfgang Amadeus MozartFlute Concerto in G major, K.313/285c
Partita in A minor for solo flute by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1013) is a partita in four movements. Its date of composition is uncertain, though on the basis of its advanced playing technique, which is more demanding than in the flute part for the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, for example, it must have been written after 1723.
The title, however, is the work of 20th-century editors. The title in the only surviving 18th-century manuscript is "Solo p[our une] flûte traversière par J. S. Bach".
