Comments:Jan Hanford said:

A charming interpretation of four of Bach's flute sonatas. Since this release is from the "Suite" series by Harmonia Mundi there is no information about the artists, although I am familiar with William Christie as an excellent conductor. The brief liner notes are some of the most incoherent writing I've ever seen, truly bizarre.

The recording is lovely and recommended.
