Pasted Graphic
As befits a concert directed by the wonderful flautist Ashley Solomon (of Florilegium) the flute features prominently in all the works (other than the solo violin Fantasie of course!) Ashley Solomon himself plays a solo Fantasie by Telemann and the flute duets intimately with the soprano in that sublime aria in Bach's Cantata 151, "Susser trost, mein Jesu kommt". We also hear plenty from the other winds, the oboes and d'amores and bassoons in Bach's Canata 123 and in orchestral suites by Telemann and Johann Bernhard Bach. JB was a cousin of the great JS and wrote some very fine music, though most of it has been lost. It can be grand and confident, jolly and sprightly and also very charming and affecting. The Telemann suite is for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, bassoon and strings and is typiclally characterful and quirky with one movement "Les Cyclops" and another "Galimatias" (transl. 'jumbled or unintelligble words').
