These flute sonatas were written between about 1720 and 1741 at a time when the recorder was being superseded by the transverse flute. After about 1725 compositions specifically for or including recorder became increasingly rare, and these works are a celebration by Bach of the technical and expressive qualities and tonal colours newly available to him.

These are elegant and stylish performances, the use of authentic flutes adding a rich and mellow beauty to the quality of the sound.

‘These are performances I am going to be returning to again and again’ (International Record Review)

‘Lisa Beznosiuk sait prendre le temps de respirer, de suspendre la phrase, de ménager les traits virtuoses’ (Répertoire, France)

‘Beznosiuk plays accurately, with a huge dark sound and an easy-going fluency that makes these difficult pieces sound as easy as the first lessons in a Suzuki method class … this is a good, solid version of these fundamental works’ (Fanfare, USA)

‘Constant pleasure throughout … among the many recordings of these works, this stands high on the list’ (Goldberg)

‘Nicholson, Tunnicliffe, and Kenny engage with Beznosiuk and her musical ideas, creating excellent chamber music’ (American Record Guide)

‘The playing of the accompanying ensemble shares the distinction of the flautist … congratulations are well deserved all round’ (Early Music Review)
