JOSEPH BODIN DE BOISMORTIER (1689-1755): 6 Sonatas for Harpsichord and Flute, Op. 91.
Catalogue Number: 01R023
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: This 1742 publication marked a late stage in the liberation of the harpsichord from continuo duty into an obbligato solo instrument, now accompanying and now taking the lead. As with all Boismortier’s music, the emphasis is on a mix of sweetness and tenderness with a gentle dose of liveliness with no astonishing virtuosity or effects. Wilbert Hazelet (flute), Gerard de Wit (harpsichord).
