Notes and Editorial Reviews
This 8-album set presents the complete recordings of flute music by Johann Sebastian Bach and his sons made by Barthold Kuijken on the Accent label. Always playing historically accurate transverse flutes, on these albums, he teams up with harpsichordist Ewald Demeyere and other fine early music specialists in his recordings of chamber music. The recordings were made between 1978 and 2014 and are presented together for the first time. This is an opportunity not to be missed of listening to the legendary flautist in the delicate Bach repertoire. Barthold Kuijken is a Belgian flautist and recorder player, known for playing baroque music on historical instruments and particularly known for pioneering this manner of performance with his brothers, cellist and viol player Wieland Kuijken and violinist Sigiswald Kuijken and the harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt. He studied the modern flute at the Bruges Conservatory and the Royal Conservatories of Brussels and The Hague. For playing early music he originally turned to the recorder. Research on authentic instruments, frequent collaboration with various flute and recorder makers, and assiduous study of sources of the 17th and 18th centuries helped him to specialize in the performance on original instruments.

Excerpts of review from previously released volumes included in this set:

Flute Sonatas by the Bach Sons / Kuijken, Demeyere:

This is an interesting disc of music by J.S. Bach’s sons, showing the wealth of output from the family, and providing a wonderful opportunity to hear some lesser-known works from the baroque and classical eras.
