Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Son of a blacksmith, Johann Joachim Quantz (1697-1773) grew up in difficult circumstances as both of his parents were dead by time he was 10. Trained on a variety of instruments, he eventually settled on the flute as there were few accomplished flutists in Europe at the time. It was fortuitous choice.

Leaving his native Germany for study and travel in Italy, France, England, and the Netherlands, he caught the ear of the crown prince of Prussia. Engaged as the prince's private tutor, it was the opportunity of a lifetime when his pupil became Frederick the Great. Included in his duties to the King was to compose music, and did he ever. His flute concertos number more than 300, and his flute sonatas at least 200. The works on this disc span the breadth of his career, and most follow the familiar 3 movement structure.

As a composer who bridged the period from late Baroque to the first half of the Classical era, his writing shows elements of both. Written in B Flat, No.275 maintains the traditional fast-slow-fast framework of the Italian style. While the harpsichord supplies the basso continuo in the opening `Allegro', a vigorous cello supports the animated flute, sometimes with staccato repeated notes typical of the Berlin School, and at others with a lively countermelody.

In the contemplative `Affettuoso' that follows, the legato phrasing demonstrates more temporal flexibility than is customary with the usual Baroque composer. The cello recedes into the background as the keyboard assumes more prominence in this 2nd movement, written in the unexpected key of F Minor. Returning to the lighter key of B Flat, and employing an appealing rhythmic hesitation, a tripled metered `Vivace' concludes the work.

Despite the high numerical label, No.
