Mostly Bach

Peter Lynch (guitar) and David Bloom (flute) play a suite and sonata by Bach, plus Mauro Giuliani's Grand Sonata in A Major.

Recorded in the Great Hall at Montsalvat in Eltham, north-east of Melbourne.

J.S. Bach's Suite No. 2 for solo ’cello in D Minor is not only a bold and magnificent example of the master's command of counterpoint, melody and design; it works as a solo vehicle equally well for flute as performed on this album. The entire work is immensely powerful and sensitive.

The origins of Bach's C Major sonata for flute and basso continuo is a delightful work that presents major opportunities for the virtuoso.

The Grande Sonata Op.85 for flute and guitar is typical of the many delightful works to utilise the guitar in the early nineteenth century. It is one of the finest work in the flute and guitar repertoire.


David Bloom

Chicago born flautist David Bloom received his musical education in the United States at Indiana University, the Juilliard School of Music and the Mannes College of Music.

Peter Lynch
