Fans of Angela Hewitt will be delighted to find her in chamber mode, accompanying Andrea Oliva (described as ‘one of the best flutists of his generation, a shining star in the world of the flute’ by Sir James Galway) in a programme of J S Bach’s flute sonatas (including one by his most famous and talented son, CPE). Of unfailingly remarkable quality, all these works exploit the full potential of an instrument which was only just coming into its own when they were written. Oliva’s lyricism and agility coupled with Hewitt’s musicianship—not to mention her lifelong rapport with Bach’s music—make this an album to treasure.

‘Beyond doubt … are the taste and poise of these performances by Angela Hewitt and Andrea Oliva. The cream of the crop is perhaps Bach’s B minor Sonata BWV1030, but the entire set is a cornucopia of lithe invention’ (– The Daily Telegraph)

‘Andrea Oliva and Angela Hewitt relish the flowing nature of such delightful pieces, always bringing a gentle lilt and lift to the proceedings … Devotees of counterpoint will not be disappointed either, and will relish Hewitt’s ability to point up canons and imitative effects in the keyboard parts, as well as her always refined use of staccato … Oliva’s elegance of phrasing and breath control are everywhere exemplary’ (–International Record Review)
