About this release

Another collection of Bach’s chamber music from the ensemble led by Jed Wentz and Michael Borgstede, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung’s Middle East correspondent. As on its earlier release on Brilliant Classics, the ensemble has researched the scores, performance techniques and the types of instrument used at the time of composition. That is not to say that the approach they take is a dry academic one. On the contrary, having assimilated all the information available to them, they then take an open-minded view of the score – freely admitting that if they were to play these works tomorrow, they’d more than likely give them a totally different interpretation. This new recording includes the flute sonatas and solos, and the Ricercar from the Musical Offering BWV1079. As no one actually knows what Bach’s intentions were when it came to performance and interpretation, the listener can be assured of fresh and invigorating readings of this fascinating and timeless music.

Other information:
- Period instrument interpretations
- Booklet notes by Jed Wentz, flautist. Wentz studied with Barthold Kuijken, and has studied 18th-century stage production and acting techniques, as well as Irish set dancing.
