The four Bach flute sonatas presented in this volume offer a genuine variety both in style and transmission. The first two are thoroughbass sonatas conceived for flute, string bass and harpsichord. Their time of origin is uncertain and might even date back to Bach's Kothen period. In the transmitted version with obbligato harpsichord, the sonatas in b minor and A major BWV 1030 and 1032 are most probably arrrangements of earlier, no longer surviving works.The compositional interweaving of the sonatas for flute and harpsichord reaches its apogee in the contemplative b minor sonata, which is a masterpiece of the flute repertoire. By contrast, the A major sonata is captivating for its brilliant joyfulness and radiant colour.

    This is an absolute essential for the serious flutist. This edition of Bach's flute sonatas is very, very highly recommended. The flute part comes with the bass part written in a separate line directly underneath the flute line: an absolute boon for studying and preparing this often polyphonic Baroque...

    music. This edition really is just beautiful throughout.

  • 2009-04-17 00:00:00.0 J.S. BACH WOULD APPLAUD THIS WORK

    THIS WORK IS WELL WRITTEN WITH PRESERVATION OF BACH'S INTEGRITY AND CONVENIENT PAGE TURNS. I AM SURE THAT BACH WOULD BE WELL PLEASED AT HIS WORK BEING PRESENTED IN SUCH A FASHION. THE VOICING IS EXCELLENT ALLOWING THE BOTTOM LINE FREEDOM TO BE USED AS BASSO CONTINUO OR CELLO...

    . BEING A OCTAVE APART DOES NOT MAKE THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE BECAUSE THE VOICING IS SO WELL DONE
