Numbering

Alan Raph's edition of the Telemann Flute Fantasias uses a different numbering scheme from the original. This gets confusing because since he's transposing to different keys from the original (in all cases but no. 1 in A major) you can't tie them back using key names or the numbers. I'll be using the original numbering scheme, not Raph's, though I'll be working from 7 of Raph's arrangements. Below is a handy chart to tie it all together. I'm not sure why Raph renumbered them in his edition. The more challenging Fantasias seem clustered in his higher numbers. Perhaps he arranged them progressively by order of difficulty.

The first chart is sorted by the original number (the scheme I'll be using), and the second chart is sorted by Raph's numbers.
