Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Verena Fischer is one of the leading baroque transverse flutists of her generation, and Léon Berben is considered a master in the field of harpsichord and organ. Together they've recorded the 12 flute sonatas of Johan Helmich Roman and a selection of six Quantz sonatas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
It is truly beautiful in the Solo, and she does some magical things there in addition to playing the fast movements as fast as I would play them on a modern flute. I am astonished by her playing in the Solo. Leon Berben's harpsichord is vibrant and heard closely so we get the tone as well as the tin in the sound. These players always mark the beat while playing, placing clear emphasis on rhythmically important notes. The outstanding playing on this release will be a lesson for flute players and a pleasure for other listeners who like Bach.
