Description:

Johann Sebastian Bach’s  flute sonatas are chamber music repertoire of rare quality. The six sonatas are all very different from one another in both style and character, and they provide a musical material to explore in depth, to live with and to discover new elements to over a whole lifetime. It has taken a certain amount of courage for these, three young musicians at an early stage in their careers, to choose to record this particular well-known repertoire. Their aim with this recording has been to play as they, at this point in their lives, feel that the music must be played. They want each moment, tone or phrase to exhibit complete conviction in its interpretation, as a result of their ensemble's performance, based on impulses and inspiration between the musicians.

Reviews:

 From the beginning to the end, this recording is one of the most convincing (and most beautiful) recordings of the Bach Sonatas on the recorder. For me, clearly the new reference recording, which will be difficult to get past. We will surely hear a lot from this great artist in the future!        10 of 10
