Format:Audio CD
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750): Flute Sonatas Vol. 2. Partita in A Minor BWV 1013; Sonata in C Major BWV 1033 in two versions; Sonata in E Flat Major BWV 1031; Sonata in G Minor WV 1020. Performed by Janet See, baroque transverse flute; Davitt Moroney, harpsichord; Mary Springfels, viola da gamba.

Recorded in March 1990 by Skywalker Sound of Marin County, California.

Harmonia Mundi, originally released as the second CD of the set HMU 907024.25, now re-released in the budget Classical Express series as HMCX 2957025. Total time: 57’15”.

The first volume of Bach’s flute sonatas by the same performers (HMCX 3957024) has been given almost unanimous praise by critics and Amazon reviewers alike. This second volume continues the marvelous performance on period instruments by three of America’s most accomplished baroque musicians. The main difference between the two CDs is the fact that the pieces on this CD are more controversial from a musicological standpoint and that Janet See has opted to play two of them as flute solos. BWV 1013, the partita in A minor, is an older piece that Bach possibly wrote for French virtuoso flautist Buffardin in Dresden. Janet See gives a spirited performance, and it is probably only the very last note of the Allemande (where she concludes the movement with a loud and rather shrill tone) where opinions will differ. BWV 1033 has been classed by musicologists as spurious, possibly as a work by Bach’s second son Carl Philipp Emanuel. Davitt Moroney, obviously the driving musicological force behind the recording, thinks that Johann Sebastian may have written the flute part, while Carl Philipp Emanuel added the bass line.

Bach's flute sonatos
like you've never heard them. Janet See plays the baroque flute (wood) like an angel. The sound of these selections is crystal clear and mellow. Fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bach: Flute Sonatas, Vol. 2... November 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard the Sonata in B Minor from "Bach: Flute Sonatas, Vol. 1" last week (11/05/12-11/09/12) on KUSC-FM while driving. The combination of Janet See's Traverse Flute and Davitt Moroney's Harpsichord (along with Mary Springfels Viola da Gamba) is excellent in my book!

That said, I purchased "Bach: Flute Sonatas, Vol. 2" by the same artists without hesitation!

Consistant, technically competent, enjoyable are words that come to mind with this collection!

Again, erfect for playing at work (and helping me get work done)!

I rate Bach: Flute Sonatas, Vol.2 - Five stars!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and Out of Tune, Just as Vol 1 August 1, 2007
By Artusi
Format:Audio CD
I would like to say that this recording was an improvement over Volume 1, which I found to be rather annoyingly out of tune (Ms. See) and hideously dull (all except Ms. Springfels). I see that the price on this set just keeps dropping and dropping, probably soon to be remaindered altogether. These are very significant works that deserve a much more invigorating and imaginative treatment than they are given here.
