Joseph Bodin de Boismortier was highly successful in his lifetime, but many of his more than 100 works are forgotten today. His Duo Sonatas for string or wind instruments, however, continue to enjoy great popularity, especially among teachers and their students. With these Six Sonatas op. 14, G. Henle Verlag is expanding its repertoire of technically-easy string chamber music, and also invites bassoonists to engage with these delightful French Baroque pieces. This Henle Urtext edition follows the first edition published in Paris in 1726. It presents the works in score format, thereby allowing players to swap parts spontaneously when repeating sections. We also include a second score to which Thomas Klein has addedfingerings and bowings, enabling less advanced cellists to get directly to grips with these works.
