Flauto Dolce Duo is a new professional ensemble that made its concert debut in May 2013 in a performance of the organ trio sonatas of J. S. Bach as arranged for recorder and harpsichord.   Flauto Dolce Duo focuses on the recorder and harpsichord repertory of the mid to late Baroque era, ca. 1680 to 1750.  They are available for performances at concert venues including houses of worship, and for less formal settings such as libraries, community centers, schools, and private settings.

Recorder player Lewis R. Baratz has a M.Mus. in performance from Southern Methodist University and a Ph.D. in historical performance practice from Case Western Reserve University, serves on the Board of Directors of Early Music America, and is Artistic Director of the period instrument ensemble La Fiocco. 

Harpsichordist Sean Price holds performance degrees from Westminster Choir College in Princeton and studied with Lionel Party at The Juilliard School.  Sean is director of music ministries at The Episcopal Church of St. James in Upper Montclair and maintains an active concert schedule as a harpsichordist and continuo player.
