About

Joseph Bodin de Boismortier (1789‐1755) was a highly successful French composer of instrumental and vocal music, the first independent composer without patron, publisher of his own works (which made him extremely wealthy).

Boismortier’s flute sonatas are a harmonious blend of the French and Italian style, pleasing to the ear, light‐footed and tuneful, and aimed to entertain.

These are excellent performances by Dutch flutist Wilbert Hazelzet, an artist who won his spurs in his collaboration with pioneers Ton Koopman, Reinhard Goebel and Franz Brüggen. He is supported by Gerard de Wit, one of Holland’s excellent harpsichord players.
