      Bach: Flute Sonata in A major, BWV 1032 (13:04)

      Robert Stallman, flute; Edwin Swanborn, harpsichord

      On his latest recording project, flutist Robert Stallman takes us into a coffeehouse with J.S. Bach. Stallman says: “These flute sonatas show us how Bach took on the musical culture war of his day and made it a win for himself. The galant style—you might call it the ‘minimalist school’ of that era—was fast becoming the rage. Facing into a café audience, Bach had to deal with public demand for the galant. So he found a way to happily indulge the trend while still writing music that reaches people on a deeper level.”
