These recordings are quality Bach performances. The rich sound of Janet See's tone immediately captivates your senses and is enhanced nicely by a perfectly-resonant recording ambiance (not too close, not too distant). Her Baroque transverse flute exudes a deeper, more "earthy" timbre compared to the brighter one of the modern flute and is most attractive and soothing to hear. Indeed, for this reason, many enjoy these pieces late at night. David Moroney is a world-renown harpsichordist who gives Ms. See an attractive and perfectly flowing background. Bach's flute sonatas have always been some of his more enchanting compositions and this duo brings out such wonderous depth with ever-so-smooth lyricism and poise. Represented on this disc are four of the six sonatas: E major, E minor, A major and the B minor (BWV 1034, 1035, 1032 and 1030 respectively). Volume II rounds out the six with some other works for solo flute.
