Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A highly fashionable instrument in the 18th c., C.P.E. Bach used the flute in his compositions throughout his life. His works for the instrument, including the complete sonatas for flute featured on this 2CD set, frequently betray the influence of Friedrich II (Frederick the Great), yet the distinctive traits - surprising twists, sensitivity, expressiveness and new compositional approaches - of a composer as great as C.P.E. Bach often surface. Dorothea Seel plays a copy of a late-Baroque Transverse flute; Keyboardist Christoph Hammer on period fortepiano provides the accompaniment.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Seel plays a boxwood copy of a flute made around 1720 by Jacob Denner, and Hammerplays a fortepiano that is a modern copy of a Silbermann instrument from 1749. The sound is very close and especially sonorous. The fortepiano is plummy and full and sustains far more than you'd expect. It has a sustain pedal, una corda pedal, and harpsichord register. Thus the sound of the flute rests on this lush bed. It's a very sonically comfortable place you might like to spend a while, and contrasts with the hard edges Kossenko brings us and the dramatized approach taken by members of Musica ad Rhenum. All these approaches to CPE Bach are valid and worth hearing, but this is the most beautiful.
