Ashley Solomon is a British flute and recorder player and founder of the early music ensemble Florilegium. He says his latest album, The Spohr Collection, “came about through a chance encounter with a remarkable private collection of flutes, held in Frankfurt. This collection includes several hundred historical flutes, spanning the history of the instrument.” Solomon has recorded many of these instruments for the first time in a program of music by Bach, Telemann, Leclair, Locatelli, and others.
