London Handel Players release ‘A tribute to Bach’

Partnered with her fellow members of the London Handel Players, Laurence Cummings, harpsichord and Katherine Sharman, cello and cello piccolo, internationally renowned baroque flautist Rachel Brown presents the flute sonatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, which form the pinnacle of the flute repertoire. Rachel is also joined by Elizabeth Cragg, soprano, Charles Daniels, tenor and Peter Harvey, baritone in a juxtaposition of Bach’s flute sonatas with his magnificent arias. Rachel writes: "The inspiration for this disc stemmed from my sheer wonder at Bach’s rich and hugely varied compositions for the flute and from a deep and ever-growing respect for the unquestionably admirable flautists who performed for him and inspired him to write in such new and both technically and expressively demanding ways”
