Recorded: September 3, 2021
This program explores the flute repertoire of the golden era of early chamber music by French composers of the first half of the 18th century, when Paris was the cultural center of Europe. At that time, the Baroque flute became the most popular wind instrument. The program showcases some of the most sophisticated and graceful flute solo and ensemble works by François Couperin, Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, Jacques-Martin Hotteterre, and Michel Pignolet de Montéclair.
