An agreeable musician, clever, sociable, a shaper of verse, a man of wit whose sallies were greatly appreciated and whose fertile pen was guaranteed to turn out another volume of works every month, Boismortier was the perfect man of his time, courteous, cultured and able to adapt to his surroundings. In this, their first recording, Le Petit Trianon have chosen pieces from his immense body of work that felicitously blend the sonorities of the flute, violin, bassoon, cello and harpsichord.
