Quantz Flute Sonatas - Vol. 2
edited by Rachel Brown
These exhilarating works were composed for Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, and have remained in his private collection, largely unkown, since the eighteenth century. Now published for the first time, these choicest pieces may, at last, assume their rightful position in the core flute repertoire.
