Following great interest in her research, Rachel has published two volumes of her favourite Quantz Sonatas, supported by subscribers worldwide.

With exhilarating Allegros and heartfelt Adagios, these works, published here for the first time may, at last, assume their rightful place in the core flute repertoire.

 

This Urtext edition presents:

  • combined flute and figured bass parts, essential for ornamentation
  • fold-out pages eliminating page turns
  • keyboard realization of figured bass by Terence Charlston
  • facsimile reproduction of original manuscripts
  • performance notes by Rachel Brown

A TRIBUTE TO BACH:

BACH SONATAS & ARIAS

with Laurence Cummings, harpsichord, the London Handel Players and singers Elizabeth Cragg, Charles Daniels and Peter Harvey.

"So beautiful...If you want a flautist's guide to Bach, I don't think it comes much better than this".

Record Review, BBC Radio 3, 2nd April, 2016

"the range of tone colours conjured up by a mere wind instrument…was amazing…In fact, the Sarabande alone was so bewitchingly improvisatory that, the first time I heard it, I had to listen to it three times. Such effortlessly organic ornamentation, the sense at times mournful, at times utterly spiritual, and all from a single flute!"
