Ashley Solomon flute
Father, Son and Godfather
Ashley Solomon explores repertoire for unaccompanied flute by three giants of the baroque era. Six Fantasias by Telemann are performed either side of works by Johann
Sebastian Bach and his most famous son Carl Phillip Emmanuel who was inspired to write for the flute by his employer King Frederick the Great of Prussia. All three composers were very closely linked, with Telemann being CPE Bach’s Godfather.
All twelve Fantasias have recently been recorded by Ashley Solomon for Channel Classics on a number of flutes, including two unique instruments both built in 1760. One is an ivory flute by the English maker Cahusac, the other belongs to the Royal Collection Trust and is believed to have been owned and played by King George III.
