A beautifully rendered account of Telemann’s inspired compositions for flute and recorder, instruments which he himself played. Included are solo sonatas for flute, recorder and voice flute (a tenor-range recorder in D), a trio sonata for flute and viola da gamba, as well as two pieces which feature the harpsichord in an obbligato role – an equal partner to the flute line. Knight plays superbly, always with a keen ear for expression and line, never allowing virtuosic writing to obscure her nuanced interpretation. Throughout she is sensitively and expertly partnered by Ichise and Bigwood, the trio blending clarity with warmth of tone. Scholarly and illuminating booklet notes accompany this thoughtfully programmed and elegant offering.
