Album Summary

>Blavet, Michel : Sonatas (6) for flute & continuo, Op 2
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although he was self-taught and left-handed, Blavet played several instruments, became a brilliant bassoonist, and was the most famous flute virtuoso of the first half of the 18th century, and his first concertos and sonatas obtained immense success in Concert Spirituel. On this CD Pierlot plays a wooden flute, making us rediscover the unsuspected sound of Opus 2.
