Notes & Reviews:

Emmanuel Pahud, regarded as one of today's greatest flautists, releases The Flute King - a new recording featuring music written for King Frederick the Great of Prussia, whose own love of music changed the face of the musical scene in continental Europe. King Frederick was known as a great patron of the arts, particularly music, and was himself a very fine flute player and composer. Recorded with the Kammerakademie Potsdam and renowned harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock, The Flute King features works by several of the period's most celebrated composers, including C.P.E. Bach, Quantz and J.S. Bach. Furthermore, the 2 albums set contains music composed by King Frederick himself, which is rarely recorded or performed. The deluxe edition of The Flute King is a 2-CD casebound book with in-depth, insightful essays on the life and times of King Frederick, notes both on the featured composers and Pahud. Along with access to exclusive online content, the package also includes a photo gallery of historical images. Exclusive EMI recording artist, Emmanuel Pahud, is the pre-eminent flautist of his generation. As Principal Flautist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Pahud is musical heir to the greatest flautists in recorded history, including Sir James Galway and Jean-Pierre Rampal. He is also a thoroughly modern artist, who strives to expand the flute's language, reach, and appeal by invigorating core repertoire, working with contemporary composers, exploring eastern musical traditions, and by reaching out to current and new audiences through both traditional performances with innovative multi-media collaborations.

BBC Music Magazine
Pahud is outstanding, albeit on a modern metal flute rather than a gentler, less penetrating historical wooden instrument.. He's best of all in CPE Bach's solo Sonata where, with reverberant acoustic and excellent recording, he generates fine fruity bass notes to support the broken harmony above. A fascinating snap-shot of the mid-18th century Berlin court.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
If one excludes all the galant touches, Frederick the Great's Concerto 3 is the concerto that Vivaldi didn't write. Despite the similarities, this piece is clearly of its time and place. Franz Benda's 18-minute sturm und drang Concerto in E minor takes me away like Calgon, only better. I'm now dying to play it. Quantz's most famous Concerto in G is a 16- minute minor galant masterpiece.
