These flute sonatas were written between about 1720 and 1741, at a time when the recorder was being superseded by the transverse flute.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

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
