The flute solos from the Bach cantatas require great performers. Some 300 years after they were premiered, the Bach Collegium Stuttgart and Hänssler Classic are pleased to celebrate Peter-Lukas Graf, one of their most eminent soloists! Our selection presents them in what we hope is a pleasing, varied manner and concentrates on bringing out a wide color palette: in addition to the well-known trio sonata form (i.e. two instruments and continuo), the listener will also find pieces associating the flute with another instrument (or more) - such as a second flute, one or two oboi d’amore, a violin sometimes playing in unison - or works in which the flute is accompanied by the full string section, and four choruses from four different cantatas, each with a concertante flute part.
