Notes and Editorial Reviews

Emmanuel Pahud, regarded as one of today’s greatest flautists, performs music written for his instrument for one of the greatest monarchs, King Frederick the Great of Prussia, whose own love of music changed the face of the musical scene in continental Europe. Pahud recorded this product with the Kammerakademie Potsdam in the town where Frederick’s beloved summer palace of Sanssouci was based, with renowned harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock.

This 2-CD set explores works written by the fêted composers from the time of King Frederick the Great of Prussia in the mid-eighteenth century, including Quantz, C.P.E. Bach, Benda and JS Bach: a combination of concerti, solo sonatas and chamber works.

The set also
Read more feature music composed by King Frederick himself, which is now rarely recorded or performed, as well as music by his sister Anna Amalia, to whom he was close. Anna Amalia was taught flute and harpsichord by her brother and based herself in Berlin where she devoted herself to music and was known as one of the great musical patrons and also as a composer.
