Of Bach's twenty kids, CPE was no slouch, musically, and had quite a romantic bent. These Sonatas for Flute and Harpsichord, as recorded on this CD, will whisk you away. I say "as recorded on this CD" for a good reason: the sound quality is so... ethereal... that it simply mesmerizes and transports one. The music, not at all staid in the standard baroque manner (no slur intended to Papa Bach), is quite forward-looking and warm. It's a sunny CD for a beautiful day, or a perfect CD for kicking back during an afternoon rain... perhaps with some good red vino and your best girl kicking back with you. Ah, the glories of CPE's music! And the melodies. And the sound Naxos gives us in this beautiful recording.... all of this for us to revel in. For the little money it takes to feel THIS good, buy this CD and, well, FEEL GOOD. Cripes! Life's hard enough as it is. This is a simple, affordable pleasure.
