Virtuoso flautist Juliette Hurel offers us two pillars of the Cantor's work for transverse flute: the essential Suite in B Minor for flute and strings, which ends in the world-famous Badinerie, and the unique Partita (or Sonata, the editors can't quite decide) for solo transverse flute; and the no-less famous BWV 1013 of the 1720s. Around these twin pillars, Hurel weaves an intricate and varied tapestry, bringing in the Sonata for Trio BWV 1038, which gives every indication of being the work of Johann Sebastian, whereas it was in fact written by Carl Philipp Emanuel – or, at the very least, was a father-son collaboration. And finally we can hear the soprano Maïlys de Villoutreys performing the St Matthew Passion, the "Coffee Cantata", the Cantata "Ich habe genug" and the Easter Oratorio, in which the solo flute takes centre stage. By way of accompaniment we have the Les Surprises ensemble, a rather continuo string quintet and, on the keyboards (harpsichord and organ), we have Louis-Noël Bestion de Camboulas. © SM/Qobuz
