2.0 out of 5 stars IT MUST JUST BE ME 24 Oct 2012
By Lapwing
Format:MP3 Download
I have owned an ancient vinyl disc of these concerti played by Jean Pierre Rampal for half a century and thought it time to replace it with something a little more modern ! I was immediately impressed by the open and clean sound of this recording and initially impressed by the viruosity of Gallois' playing. The enthusiastic orchestral support was equally stimulating.But then, on repeated listening I began to tire of the tone Gallois brought to sustained notes, continually swooping up to the note from about a semitone flat. Thinking it was just me not understanding baroque intonations, I thought it best to ask a friend who plays a baroque flute if this was a tradition at the time. I was told that it was not. In view of the splendid reviews above I hesitate to damn with faint praises, but it may be that you could become disturbed by the same intonation problems that now mean my enjoyment of this disc is no more. So beware the upward swoops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flute perfection 26 April 2007
By Biblibio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
C.P.E. Bach composed some lovely concertos for flute. I'll also point out that they're not so easy. But Gallois plays perfectly. His sound is clear, beautiful, and always lovely to listen to. The music is both fun, dramatic, and exciting. It's everything any concerto should be. It's just by the other Bach, and it's just for flute.

Regarding the music, there are different feels for the different concertos. For example, the A-minor concerto feels slower (which, of course, it's not) than the others. The B-flat major concerto sounds almost like Mozart's style, but ah - Mozart snagged this style from Bach (this Bach)! Another goodie on the first disc is the sonata for solo flute, which besides being beautiful is emotional and lovely.

The next disc starts out bouncy with the A-major concerto. The G-major concerto once again gives a sort of Mozart feel while still wholly original. The strings have a long solo at the beginning where they display emotion and feeling. Then the flute kicks in, and it's just gorgeous. The CD ends with the D-minor concerto, which is very beautiful and played wonderfully.

It's an excellent CD for any flute lover, but also for any music lover. C.P.E. Bach was an excellent composer and these wonderful concertos are proof of his talent. The sound is perfectly fine (everything sounds all good to my ears), so no worries there.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Penguin Rosette Award Winner 16 Oct 2005
By Alan Lekan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
C.P.E. Bach often does not get the credit he deserves for his pioneering new ideas that led into the "classical" era. His influence on Mozart can be heard from the opening allegro of the G minor concerto - music that most people would likely identify as Mozart not knowing anything more. The concertos here are both fine compositions and performances - so much that Penguin Guide awarded this CD a top-of-the-class "Rosette" award.

I think the below reviewer was way too hard on the sound quality. It is really fine, clear and unobjectionable - Penguin calls it "first class" even. I think the sound slightly lacks some of the "punch" of the Philips DUO CD of many of the flute concertos (also rated highly), but I cannot see not buying this CD because of it. Naxos sound is usually "very good" but rarely "poor" or the "absolute finest" of the available choices. Where this CD contains all of the flute concertos, the Philips DUO CD does not but contains some other works for oboe and harp if you want more diversity. Both are fine choices for this music. 4.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Late Baroque / Early Classical Flute Concertos 17 May 2013
By Commissioner Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The flute concertos of C.P.E. Bach are written for flute and string orchestra with harpsichord continuo. They were composed around 1740-1750 for the Prussian Court. They are rather daring and unconventional, not the usual crowd-pleasing music one normally heard from 18th century court composers.

This 2 CD recording is pretty good overall...I think a modified period-style flute is used, along with a modern chamber orchestra....but the brightest and tightest performances of these concertos is by Jean-Pierre Rampal and the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra on SONY/Columbia. That recording may now be too expensive and hard to find, however, so this CD will do nicely instead. And it's much less expensive.

I wonder how I didn't discover these pieces before. They are like heaven. I totally recommend them for any classical music fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gallois is an extraordinaire virtuoso ! 28 Feb 2003
By François Beaudoin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This music is absolutely superb !! I did not know Gallois before. He is a great virtuoso. This music of C.P.E. is astonishing. A great discovery for me. But, of course, you have to love flute. This beautiful and rhythmic music is never agressive for the listener. And you'll have two CDs at a bargain price. I had some doubt about NAXOS recording. It has been confirmed after listening to this CdS on all of my CD players. The sound of the flute is very clear. But we can't heared the orchestra with clarity. The sound of orchestra, the strings in particular, is so unclear and bad that it's ruined most of the pleasure. NAXOS does it again !!! Poor label. Personnally, this is my last purchase of a NAXOS CD.
On the whole, I give 5 stars for the performance of Patrice Gallois and 1 star for the NAXOS recording.
