The Traverso Project

Recommended Listening

This is not an exhaustive list of available recordings, but are some of my favourites. If you’re interested in more recordings or live concerts, start by having a look at the websites of The London Handel Players and The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

Barthold Kuijken: Barthold’s recording of the Flute Sonata in G Major by G.F. Handel is what originally sparked my interest in Baroque music. His recording of J.S. Bach’s Flute Sonata in E minor is also superb.

Rachel Brown: Rachel has produced a wealth of recordings, and I advise listening to any and all of them. She’s truly a master of the traverso and of Baroque style. I highly recommend her album of Handel solo sonatas.

Lisa Beznosiuk: Lisa, currently professor of Baroque Flute at the Royal Academy of Music, has recorded all of the Bach and Handel flute sonatas. They are available for purchase.

Claire Guimond: Claire, professor of Baroque Flute at McGill University in Montreal, has an extensive discography. Her Telemann Fantasias are particularly lovely.
