    I love galant music. Although some would say this piece exists in the purgatory between baroque and classical music, I would suggest that good galant music is as good as it gets, maybe a little bit superficial, but, hey, it expresses emotion so it can't be all that bad...

    . I performed this Benda Sonata for a Camerata del Re concert on August 19, 2012 and got a great review by Lawrence Budman on South Florida Classical Review. "Robert Billington’s lithe, agile Baroque flute animated Benda’s Sonata No.2 in G Major, a melodically delightful soufflé. The brilliance and energy of Billington’s reading of the final Allegro was particularly distinguished. In duet with Billington the light, pliant sound of Paulson-Thorp’s fortepiano was refreshing in Benda’s ascending melodies, an antidote to overassertive accompanists on modern concert grands. Alamilla’s continuo part was unusually intricate, displaying her considerable virtuosity on the Baroque cello."
