Summary/Abstract: In the Baroque period of the 17th and 18th centuries, several excellent tractates that focused on the instrumental early music performance were printed. Alongside them, the published methodical early music was devoted to particular problems of instrumental performance. The example of that are Methodical Sonatas for Violin or Flute and Basso Continuo by Georg Philipp Telemann. They deal with quite a serious problem of ornamentation while drawing inspiration from the principles of the mixed – German style. Their methodical quality lies in the fact that the author writes their compositions in one line in the form the compositions are commonly written, while in the line beneath they add the recommended ways of ornamentation. In addition, they also serve as the methodical guide for a precise assignment of the period tempo at which the verbal expression had a different meaning than in the present time. In this sense we can benefit from the tractate by Johann Joachim Quantz entitled Attempt to Create Manual of Playing Diagonal Flute.
