Johann Christian Schickhardt was three years older than Johann Sebastian Bach, survived him by more than a decade and travelled all over in contrast to his contemporary. Whether the fact that his surviving creations are characterised by wonderful suppleness and beauty of sound was due to his love of travel would be worth investigating. Indeed, his works were not only highly regarded by his high-class dedicatees. Schickhardt mastered the international vocabulary of the baroque, whose elements he combined easily to create works to "entertain the spirit" that have survived for centuries. And thanks to the excellent ensemble Epoca Barocca, the old prejudice that two recorders are "worse" than one loses its very last fundament.
