For her debut, Aysha Wills chose J.S. Bach’s famous flute sonatas, one of the most important works ever written for the traverso. “My love for Bach started early on with the endless playing of the ‘Goldberg Variations’ in the performance of Glenn Gould. Bach’s music evokes deep emotions in me and the contrasts he brings to his compositions are incomparable. More than many of his contemporaries, he brings tension and knows how to alternate in a natural way”, says Wills. “I felt that now was the time to record his flute sonatas. In my approach, I take a slightly freer approach to rhythm and ensemble playing and add ornamentation where I think the music calls for it. I think Bach would have done the same.”

This exemplarily recorded TRPTK release of Bach’s flute sonatas might just become a new reference.

The album is exclusively available in Stereo and 5 Channel DSD 256 and DSD 128 plus Stereo DSD 512 at NativeDSD. The album is also available in Stereo and 5 Channel DSD 64 and DXD plus an Auro 3D edition in 5.1.4 Immersive Audio.

Press reviews

Opus Klassiek

With these four flute sonatas by Bach, Aysha Wills is presenting herself on CD for the first time, a debut that certainly scores high thanks to her technical vocabulary (which also includes the breathing technique!) and the musician-like character she lends to this music, with the harpsichordist Artem Belogurov and the cellist Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde as like-minded partners. (…) The recording made by Brendon Heinst is a true jewel: as clear as glass and with a particularly beautiful ‘punch’.
