The Spohr Collection vol. 3

Solomon, A. (2024) The Spohr Collection vol. 3. [Audio]


Music by WA Mozart, John Frederick Lampe, Antonio Vivaldi, Walter Clagget, WF Bach, Thomas Chilcot, Pietro Locatelli, Francesco Barsanti and Johann Christoph Pepusch. Flutist Ashley Solomon and Florilegium continue the Spohr Collection project with Volume 3. Ashley plays nine original exquisite 18th century flutes from Peter Spohr’s private collection, which can now be heard around the world for the first time. They are made from various materials including solid ivory, ebony and ivory, and boxwood and ivory. These historical instruments possess a beautiful and unique sound, making them most desirable to play. This new recording explores repertoire from Italy, Germany and England written by composers including Vivaldi, Mozart, Clagget and Locatelli. Each work matches historically and geographically with the flute Ashley plays. Soprano Rowan Pierce joins them for two songs by Chilcot and Lampe.
