Höskuldsson plays J.S. Bach in Weggis Recital

Dear Flutists,

This is the J.S. Bach A minor, unaccompanied Sonata, or Partita as played by Stefan Höskuldsson, principal flute of The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.

For those readers who don't yet know this Partita by heart, the sheetmusic is free online here.
Very good footage! Do watch.

Very clean tongueing, nice handposition, very secure but for me too superficial and thus not interesting.Too much like a moto perpetuo. A pity I think. I suggest he'd ( every flutist) read Betty Bang's "Partita in A minor with emphasis on the Allemande" Historical Clues and new discoveries for performance. You can get it from Falls House Press. Best wishes.
