Bach – Flute Sonatas Vol. 1
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.

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