Joseph Bodin de Boismortier (1689-1755), was one of the most versatile and prolific French composers of his day. He not only wrote ballet operas as well as various vocal works but also composed numerous instrumental compositions, showing a clear preference for combinations involving the flute.
These delightful and musically appealing Sonatas Op. 25 may also be played by other instruments, e.g. oboes or violins or combinations of different wind or wind and string instruments.
