Penguin Guide, January 2009

Patrick Gallois is a masterly flautist, and he gives a superb set of performances of these fine concertos written for the court of Frederick the Great and arranged by the composer from works originally featuring the harpsichord as soloist. There is much sparkling vivacity in the allegros, and the expressive range of the slow movements, sometimes quite dark in feeling, is fully captured by both soloist and the excellent Toronto Camerata under Kevin Mallon, who ensures the consistent vitality of the music-making. Gallois uses Bach’s own cadenzas throughout, and he also gives an admirably spontaneous account of the Solo Sonata that shows his lovely tone at its most beguiling. With first-rate recording this Naxos set now sweeps the board…
