    Those flute sonatas are lovely, Stuart. I have the Naxos issues.

    I have a number of CD's on JS Bach Flute Concertos by the late Jean-Pierre Rampal. It is beautiful music, as all JS Bach works are. Emanuel Pahud is supposed to be the top flutist in the world. I am still waiting for the following CD to arrive where the top flutist performed with the top clarinetist.

    I am thinking about ordering this Pinnock/Pahud set from MDT when I place my 4th order.

    I think it is probably more difficult to find a DCC player ...

    I've always had a soft spot for the Bach and Handel Flute Sonatas (and the Handel Recorder Sonatas). They constitute some of the most relaxing music I know.

    BTW, I just listened to the Prokofiev flute sonata today from a five disc Prokofiev set recently purchased from MDT. I think I had a 1960's vintage LP, but I suspect it's been 25 years at least since I last heard it. Both recordings by Rampal. Very nice music. Easily accessible.

    Also, I heard Pahud in concert several years ago. I was impressed. Perhaps more significantly, the professional fl[a]utist who went with me was equally impressed.

    Although, musically for Elgar, I prefer the cello concerto.

    Same here. The violin concerto is nice but the cello one is something else!

    Speaking of Trevor Pinnock, I've recently got this complete set of Mozart Symphonies.

    [​IMG]

    I think the period instruments do the music incredible justice. It sounds much more exotic in a strange way. Close miking and creates a nice crisp, dry sound. I was especially never a fan of period instruments on the late symphonies, as I thought they warranted a more massive, weighty, Beethoven-esque approach...but even they are nice in a charming way on this set. Again I think a lot has to do with the recording techniques.
