Six Sonatas for Flute & Harpsichord, Op. 5
Sheridon Stokes, flute and Bess Karp, harpsichord

"The entire recording is a joy and a delight." - Recorder News

"This world premiere recording of these sonatas shows a rather unusual side of Boccherini. Stokes performs excellently, and Karp's playing yields nothing to complain about, either." - Kite
