James Oswald wrote two sets of Airs for the Seasons, each set comprising twelve pieces for each season; a total of ninety-six miniatures, each representing a plant at its most distinctive period in the year. The original pieces survive as figured keyboard solos (also available) playable as violin/flute sonatas. Oswald later provided second violin/flute parts for the first set of Airs, which can be performed with or without the second part.
The pieces for Autumn are: Amaranthus, Ambrosia, Aster, Belvedere, Campanula*, Candytuft, Capsicum, Daisy, Hawkweed, Jasmine, Marigold, Marvel of Peru, Monk's hood, Nightshade, Oriental mallow, Oxeye, Passiflora*, Scabious, Sneezewort, Spanish broom*, Starwort, Sumach, Sweet sultan, Violet. All are suitable for violin(s), or (except where marked *) for flute(s).
