Description

Much has been written about JS Bachs flute sonatas in the past, with opinions from numerous scholars casting doubts on the authenticity of a number of these works. In selecting the sonatas for this first recording, I was keen to choose those that would give the listener the opportunity to hear the most varied collection of compositions within Bachs flute sonata style. In so doing, I have included at least one work which scholars of Bach have not been able to prove was definitely by him.

Press reviews

Tijdschrift Oude Muziek

(…) De Fluitsonatas zijn bij Ashley in uitstekende handen, jammer dat Bach er niet meer heeft geschreven (…)

International Record Review

(WWW) (…) A technical tour de force for solo flute (…) (…) Performing at about a tone lower than modern pitch to suit his instrument, Solomon excels at the mellow and velvety and delights in the expressive potential of the breathy and wispy (…) (…) A thoroughly enjoayble disc. Roll on Volume 2.

Fanfare

(…) Solomons sound is beautiful-round and clean, he has obviously given the sonatas a lot of thought and he performs them with intelligence, but also with heart and guts, A winning combination.(…)

Gramophone

Exceptional playing on a superb instrument (…) This is an impressive and enjoyable cd that easily bears repeated listening (…) (…) genuine musical experience (…)

Luister

(…) Hij weet een prachtige ronde en frisse toon te blazen, die helemaa doet vergeten dat deze oude fluiten ook nog wel eens duf en stoffig kunnen klinken. (…) (…) Zwoele klanken en parelende virtuositeit, toch nog even een plekje vrijmaken (…)

Sunday Star Times

As durable as granite, as clear as crystal. These discs are an indispensable collection. (…) It’s as durable and as rock-hard as granite, withstanding any style of performance from the most rigorously authentic to the freest of jazz treatments. (…) ((…) The musicians are precise in phrasing and ensemble and Solomon plays with marvellous flexibility (…)

The flying Inkpot

(…) his rendition is gracious, meditatively beautiful, wanderingly toughtful (…) (…) Very ethereal indeed and perfect fare for a quiet nights music. (…)
