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, aimed to entertain. This recording presents an attractive selection of chamber music, ranging from a 'Flute Sonata' and 'Gamba Sonata', through 'Duos for 2 Flutes' to a 'Trio Sonata' and a 'Concerto'. The Cappella Musicale Enrico Stuart includes flute, oboe, viola da gamba, recorder and basso continuo (harpsichord and theorbo). The ensemble takes its name from Enrico Stuart, Duke of York, who, exiled from England because of his Catholic faith, settled in Rome and became Bishop of Frascati, where he was known as a benefactor and patron of the arts.
